For more than 30 years, New Mexico State University has celebrated its diverse international community with the annual Las Cruces International Festivalwhich traditionally features displays, performances, food and music representing more than a dozen countries. This year, in addition to being a fun way to spend a beautiful spring Saturday in Las Cruces, the April 8 festival also serves as an opportunity to show up and demonstrate your appreciation for international diversity in our community.
More than a third of these international students studied engineering, math or computer science, and 14 percent engaged in optional practical training, including many in science, technology, engineering or math professions. The growth in international STEM students is likely connected to the 25 percent increase in students from India.
More than three quarters of students from India study in these fields.
Working with our international students, we create spaces for them to interact with local students and community members. Our biggest event is the international festival, but there are many other examples, such as our regular Global Coffee Hours and the Cultural Bazaar at the Branigan Library that allow international students to speak to locals about their home countries, their customs and traditions, and their impressions of American life.
Literally hundreds, if not thousands, of both current and former NMSU Aggies are making ificant contributions in their fields. These faculty and student alumni are important allies for both NMSU and the United States and it is in our best interest to keep those allies — our friends — close.
We want people to help us celebrate our diversity and show we care about each other, regardless of political affiliation. Please come us! He may be reached at cmenking nmsu. Facebook Twitter .
