The UNM-Gallup administration has announced that effective July 31, that the Early Childhood and Family Center will be closing. The center had its grand opening on May 12, 2015 and has been available to students and community members offering educational and childcare services to children from infants to preschool age.

Interim Chief Executive Officer Jerry Dominguez noted, “As an institution, we are committed to providing high quality educational services to our students. We realize that a lack of childcare options can be a barrier for our students so we will work with them to identify available resources and help them start, continue and complete their education at UNM-Gallup.  It is our plan to look at different operating models for the Center and hopefully re-open in the future.”

UNM-Gallup serves approximately 2200 students each semester offering a variety of certificate and degree programs.
