NMEC History

In 1991, admissions and recruitment professionals from New Mexico's public colleges and universities joined together to form an organization called the New Mexico Education Council (NMEC) for purposes of conducting College Days events across the state. In 2015, the schools asked NMEAF to lend our logistics expertise, community outreach experience, administrative capabilities, and state-wide reach to strengthen NMEC. The NMEAF Board of Directors approved the creation of a DBA of NMEAF called the New Mexico Education Council, and 17 New Mexico colleges and universities joined NMEAF to form a stronger and more effective NMEC partnership. NMEAF is responsible for all logistical and administrative duties of NMEC and supports New Mexico's higher education institutions admissions and recruitment staff in connecting with high school students.
