Student Life

What is Student Life?
Student Life is a committee that supports and organizes student events and activities. We work closely with Student Senate, student clubs and Co-curricular Assessment Committee, to ensure that student activity fees are spent effectively and enhance the whole student experience at Northern New Mexico College.

Student Life and Co-curricular Assessment (CoCu) are coterminous committees that share many of the same members. CoCu assesses all activities outside of the classroom on campus. Student Life organizes, hosts, and/or funds many CoCu events. To be efficient, meetings are combined to create support in areas of overlap in missions, but also to embed a feedback loop where missions differentiate.

GOAL- NNMC will transform the WHOLE student experience by promoting co-curricular activities in the following areas: Health & Wellness, Social and Personal Growth, Culture & Identify, Student Leadership & Engagement, Campus and Community, and Career & Lifelong learning.


  • Support Social & Personal Growth
  • Cultivate Culture & Identity
  • Promote Health & Wellness
  • Encourage Student Leadership & Engagement
  • Develop Career & Lifelong Learning
  • Engage the Campus & Community
