Education & Nonprofits
Albuquerque serves as a central hub within New Mexico for educational institutions and nonprofits that champion the growth and well-being of its diverse population and throughout the state of New Mexico. The city is home to several renowned research universities, including the University of New Mexico, which contributes significantly to the research landscape of the Southwest. UNM provides not just academic excellence but also community outreach and a multitude of community partnerships.
Hundreds of educational and service-oriented non-profits dedicate themselves to a variety of causes, providing safety nets of support for those in need, from job-related programs and alleviating homelessness, to educational wilderness expeditions and outdoor programs for youth.
Albuquerque’s hundreds of non-profit organizations foster a community-driven approach to address New Mexico’s most pressing challenges and its most promising social initiatives: community improvement, job creation, civil rights and justice advocacy, as well as environmental and educational initiatives.
