NMSU Board of Regents approves operating budget for 2016-17

At a regular meeting May 13, the New Mexico State University Board of Regents approved the university system’s operating budget for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. The total budget for all campuses is $621 million, a decrease of about $30 million from the current year’s budget.

During the meeting, the Board of Regents recognized outgoing ASNMSU President Dustin Chavez for his service to the university during his time on campus. The Regents also recognized the NMSU men’s and women’s tennis teams, the women’s golf team and softball team for the completion of their successful seasons.

The Regents’ Above and Beyond Award was presented to Tim Ketelaar, an associate professor in psychology and associate dean of the NMSU Honors College. He’s also interim department head of criminal justice in the College of Arts and Sciences.

“He is a valued colleague and a visionary member of our campus community,” said Miriam Chaiken, dean of the Honors College. “He is always trying to see how we can make the institution better. He also helps us focus on the positive in times of great challenge.”

Others described Ketelaar as hard working and a servant leader. He created the university’s Salon Discovery program and has served as chair of the NMSU Faculty Senate.
