The rationale for the El Centros strategic plan is to be able to meet the challenges set forth by the President under the UNM2020 vision, as well as to set an strategic direction that will incorporate the challenges that the population of students we serve is undergoing. El Centro's Strategic Plan provides for greater involvement in retention, graduation and outreach. It also incorporates the connection that El Centro has with the communities from where UNM Raza and Latino students come from. El Centro is, and has been, essential for the overall goal of retaining UNM Raza/Latino students through the strengthening of academics, student support, and strategic relationships for community involvement and student success.'
