Toles Learning Center

Center for Academic Excellence

Facilities in the CAE are designed with flexibility in mind. Most labs can be used as straight computer labs, classrooms, or combination of the two. Flexibility allows for the meeting the educational needs: individual study, one-on-one with a tutor or faculty member, small groups, and complete classes.

Paul Horgan Library

Laid out in a semi-circle, the library is warm and inviting with Southwestern accents, lots of natural light, and many works of fine art. It provides seating for over 150 at tables and carrels, sofas, and deep-seated chairs. Computers are available on each floor and the entire building has wireless connectivity. The Ward Special Collection Room and Patterson Reading Room house specific collections. These rooms are used by individuals and small groups.

Mabee Lecture Hall

This 220 seat auditorium is used for classes, lectures, and weekend movies. It is a meeting venue for on and off-campus organizations. Audiovisual resources include wired and wireless microphone systems, video projection from computer, DVD or VHS formats, document camera, and excellent room light control.

High School Advising and Counseling Office

This office area is home to the high school advisors, academy prep advisor, ACT/SAT instructor, and U.S. Coast Guard Liaison Officer. Classrooms on the 2nd floor are used by the high school advisors and others in TLC for instruction.

Academy Prep and Military Career Office

Formerly in Toles, this program is now located in Lusk Hall under the Dean’s Office.  This office aids/assists cadets who are either sponsored by a service academy or desire to attend a service academy (self-prep) in their application and preparation for one of the five academies.

Alumni Chapel

The Alumni Memorial Chapel was dedicated 15 May 1975 to those who gave their “Last Full Measure of Devotion,” NMMI alumni who lost their lives in military service, fighting to preserve the freedoms we now enjoy. Their names and graduating classes are listed on the main bronze plaque in the Memorial Narthex. Contributions from hundreds of alumni and friends of NMMI funded the construction of the building. Lieutenant Colonel L.T. “Babe” Godfrey, Class of 1924 was both the spirit and leader of the effort for the chapel. Through his leadership and the efforts of many others, the Corps has this beautiful house of prayer.

The chapel is located at the entrance to the campus as a solid statement of NMMI’s philosophy that spiritual development is necessary for a complete education. As such, it is the spiritual center of the life of the Corps of Cadets. The chapel serves as a worship center for Catholic, Protestant, Moslem, Jewish and other faith groups represented in the Corps. The chapel and the chapel garden are quiet places of refuge in the midst of an otherwise hectic cadet life. Cadets come to sit in the chapel or memorial garden to study, talk quietly with friends, meditate, and pray.

Daniels Leadership Center

The Daniels Leadership Center is housed in a new 25,000 square foot building located at the northwest quadrant of the NMMI campus. The Center contains a multi-use Leadership Immersion Theatre, the Leadership Engagement Auditorium with tiered seating for lectures and immersed multi-media events, the Leadership Simulation and Reenactment Stage where the audience may strategize alongside famous leaders in making decisions that would affect the nation or world, and an operative Emergency Operations Center, as well as traditional computer labs, meeting and conference rooms, seminar classrooms, a resource library, and offices. The Center provides administrative oversight of the Institute’s leadership and character education programs, and offers both credit and noncredit bearing instruction to high school and college cadets. In addition, the Center offers extended education and professional development programs in leadership and character education to NMMI faculty and staff, and instruction and related contractual services for external constituents, such as those representing schools, government, homeland security and defense, and the private sector. The Center also administers the activities of the Yates Leadership Challenge Complex, which houses a Leadership Reaction Course as well as a low and high Ropes Course that has a capacity to accommodate 70 participants simultaneously. The Center hosts classes in managerial leadership leading to the Bachelor of Business Administration degree offered at the Institute by New Mexico State University. In addition, the Institute’s annual Distinguished Speakers Series is hosted at the Institute through the Center. Summer school camps promoting leadership and character development, such as CHARACTER COUNTSSM, are also sponsored by the Institute through the Center.
