Undertaken at the request of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, BBER compiled data to quantify the demand for programs at the new UNM West campus in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. The report includes an estimate of the campus's catchment area based upon drive-time analyses; demographic information on the population within the catchment area; an inventory and map of existing businesses that could serve the campus students and staff; and summaries of interviews conducted by BBER with business and community leaders on their "hopes and visions" for the UNM West campus. Illustrated with maps and tables.
