Big talk in Santa Fe about technical and vocational education. New Mexico has 17, two year colleges but the closest to Silver City is 100 miles away. True we have WNMU here in Silver City and WNMU does offer some technical and vocation programs. The problem is that WNMU charges all its students the same tuition and fees so that a student taking a vocational program at WNMU needs to pay about $3,400 a semester while a student in Las Cruces taking the same program at DACC pays only about $1,000 a semester.

To have a two year community college here in Silver City, there would need to be a community college district established and voters would have to vote a district tax. But once there is a district it would get state aid.

There are two ways the district could be organized: (1) as a branch campus of WNMU under the Board of Regents of WNMU or (2) as an independent community college under its own elected governing board.

Right now with well over half of WNMU’s classes online there is alot of vacant classroom space at WNMU that could be used to start a two year school.
