Vision Statement

Eastern New Mexico University emphasizes liberal arts education, freedom of inquiry, cultural diversity and whole student life. Excellent teaching and active learning define campus relationships. Scholarship, both primary and applied, cultural enrichment, and professional service are also important contributions of the University community.

The Eastern community envisions a university where every faculty and staff member instills in one another and in students a sense of social and cultural awareness and responsibility. The University accomplishes this by embracing and fostering diversity and inclusion among students, faculty and staff. The University engages well-qualified and caring faculty and staff who treat one another with respect and work together to accomplish institutional goals and mentor students.
