NMSU hosts visit from Sandia National Laboratories officials, opens new office space at PSL

After an official agreement was signed in April, the collaboration between New Mexico State University and Sandia National Laboratories has proceeded with the opening of a facility at NMSU’s Physical Science Laboratory in Anderson Hall.

Officials from Sandia visited NMSU Aug. 27. They met with university leadership and toured the new space, which includes room for a manager and six students. The NMSU and Sandia partnership was formed to develop learning opportunities and coordinate education and research.

The new space will allow Sandia staff to work on NMSU’s campus as well as hire NMSU students as interns or externs.

“One of the elements that will help us take a new trajectory for PSL is the partnerships with strategic partners like Sandia National Labs,” said NMSU Chancellor Dan Arvizu. “We could not be more pleased that Dr. (Stephen) Younger and his team have agreed to engage with us in a strategic relationship.”

“Our country is facing some significant national security challenges, and we are going to meet those challenges by out-innovating our adversaries,” said Younger, labs director at Sandia. “When you look at the world, it’s evolving in a way that we need the most diverse set of approaches to our problems that we can find. We’re blessed in this state to have a very diverse population, and this university represents that diverse population. I think NMSU and our other schools in the state of New Mexico represent strategic assets for our nation in helping defend us in the coming years. That’s why we are here, to tap into that diversity, to tap into that creativity.”

In addition to national security issues, the partnership will allow NMSU and Sandia to pursue opportunities of mutual interest such as discovery science, water research, cybersecurity and sustainability.

NMSU signs agreement with Sandia National Laboratories; Creates educational, research opportunities

With the signing of a memorandum of understanding, New Mexico State University and Sandia National Laboratories have established a partnership to develop learning opportunities and coordinate education and research for the next decade.

NMSU Chancellor Dan Arvizu and Sandia National Laboratories Associate Labs Director and Chief Research Officer Susan Seestrom signed the agreement April 10 in Albuquerque.

“I am happy for our two organizations to embark on a new era of cooperation and strategic partnerships,” Arvizu said. “This is an opportunity for us to work together to demonstrate that the whole is bigger than the sum of the parts. It is a very important concept for both academia and the research ability of our country’s national labs in general.”

Seestrom added Sandia’s collaboration with NMSU allows for more research to be conducted, which helps the government.

“It illustrates our commitment to partnership. I think this is going to continue to foster the kind of research that we are doing at Sandia Labs to ensure global peace and to help make New Mexico a stronger state,” she said.

This partnership is expected to allow for the sharing of specialized and unique research facilities and equipment. Inter-institutional collaborative arrangements of faculty, staff and students will include Sandia staff teaching and directing graduate students, while NMSU will offer professional development and job-related continuing education.

Additionally, this partnership will allow NMSU and Sandia to pursue opportunities of mutual interest in the areas of national security and the nation’s critical infrastructures such as water research, cyber security and sustainability.
