Prepared for a site visit by the North Central Association (NCA), this report describes the goals and vision of New Mexico State University's two-year branch campus at Carlsbad (NMSU-C) through the year 2000. The first section states the mission, goals, and purposes of NMSU-C, while the second describes six campus-wide initiatives to be completed by the year 2000 and related implementation strategies. The next section provides the vision statements and college planning model for academic affairs, while the fourth section reviews a proposal to organize academic programs into related clusters to allow greater faculty input into decision making and make it easier for students to obtain faculty expertise and sponsorship outside of the classroom. The next four sections describe the resulting four academic program clusters: (1) communication arts, business studies, teaching, and developmental studies in language arts; (2) nursing, allied health, and wellness; (3) science, mathematics, computer systems, and engineering, environmental, and manufacturing technologies; and (4) social sciences, international relations, and special studies. For each cluster, a mission statement, projected number of students for the year 2000, program strategies, the role and scope of the cluster, and a budget for 1994-95 are provided. The final sections present a travel budget for professional faculty development for 1994-95 and an overview of student services at the college, including a flow-chart of student success. (AJL)
