Council of Associate Deans for Research
Vice President for Research
The Council of Associate Deans for Research is an advisory group to recommend research policy and to coordinate operational research procedures among the colleges, university research institutes, and central research administration.
Vice President for Research serves as the Chair
The Council is composed of the associate deans for research of each of the colleges, the director of the physical science laboratory, director for the WRRI, and the University Research Council Chair, who serves as an ex officio capacity.
The membership is representative because each of the research deans and directors of the research centers are represented to ensure appropriate processes and working with research issues for NMSU.
The college dean's individual appointment of their associate dean of research determines who will be on CADRE.
No terms, the positions are permanent dependent on who is employed in the position at the time of appointment.

The Board is in continual review of the entire research enterprise at NMSU by evaluating the current research resources available, sustainability of these resources, research trends, federal & state regulatory updates, and interdisciplinary opportunities across departments and colleges. The Chair set up a task-force of CADRe members to find a new program that will assist in increasing funding opportunities and increase research productivity. GRID was taken offline and PIVOT was purchased and put into operation. CADRe members served as reviewers for the IMPACT Mini Grant awards that were highly successful in generating interdisciplinary research with young and senior researchers between colleges.
