Draft Vision and Mission Statements

    Draft Vision: The vision of this cluster is to
     form a mutually-supportive group of
     educators, researchers, and practitioners to
     advance 21st century space-related
     opportunities for teaching, research, and
     service at NMSU and in the region.

Draft Vision and Mission Statements

    Draft Mission Statement: The mission of the 21st
     Century Aerospace Cluster is to
         Expand the number of cross-disciplinary projects on
          campus,
         Utilize the strengths of other research clusters that have
          common interests, or can benefit from a space affiliation,
          especially in Homeland Security and Remote Sensing,
         Use the existing expertise and facilities to grow capabilities
          on campus to support commercial space opportunities.
         Increase the numbers of students entering Space-related
          careers through enrollment in K-12 and university programs
          focused on preparation in the STEM fields.

Potential Opportunities

    NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research
     Center (I/UCRC) Program for multi-university
     academic and industry partnerships
    National Solar Observatory (NSO) will be leaving
     Sacramento Peak. NMSU wants to be sure that the
     NSO HQ (50+ scientists and engineers) resides
     here (e.g., Arrowhead).
    JPL looking for a home for the next generation Deep
     Space Network. NMSU would like to see it out on
     the Jornada Range (or some place close).

Proposed Governance

    Governance plan is still under discussion
    Coordinators for major areas that form the
     internal advisory committee
    Need to have an external advisory committee
    In the future, we envision a dedicated cluster
     staff to help with projects
