New Mexico Highlands University Reviews
I would like to see a greater effort to support and provide classes that accommodate non-traditional students. If classes were provided with several time slots available it would benefit the nontraditional student. This would enhance the overall experience of college life for this population and allow for greater success in degree completion rates overall.
Additionally, I would like to see greater diversity in graduate degree area of study options within several programs. Specifically, within the social work program, there is a very limited range of areas of focus. Due to our ever-changing dynamic global realities, it is important that university areas of focus at the graduate level respond appropriately to the clear need for more diverse specialization.
