The University of New Mexico-Taos broke ground Friday (April 23) on its new College Pathways to Careers Center (CPCC) building, designed to bring students, faculty and the wider community together.
The CPCC, located on the Klauer Campus, will be home to the UNM-Taos Library, Southwest Research Center, Acequia Archives, tutoring services, Taos Education and Career Center (TECC), a learning studio, Career Services offices and more.
"This building is going to be awesome. We needed to move services from downtown -- wanting to consolidate buildings," said Dr. Randi Archuleta, Dean of Instruction at UNM-Taos in a statement.
The nearly 12,000-square-foot center is intended to be a resource for integrated learning and living, with both indoor and outdoor spaces for individuals and groups.
UNM chose RMKM Architecture of Albuquerque to design the facility, with an estimated cost of more than $6 million. Franken Construction was chosen as the general contractor -- the project is scheduled for completion in December 2021. A final name for the center will be decided on after its completion.
