Advisory Council

Since the Domenici Institute’s inception in 2008, an advisory group has met monthly to help guide the Institute. While this group has largely consisted of university faculty and staff, it has also benefited from the advice of community and business leaders. As director of the Domenici Institute, NMSU President Garrey Carruthers leads this group with the support of Sara Patricolo, who manages the Institute’s daily operations.

With gratitude, we acknowledge those who dedicate their ideas and time to advance the work of the Pete V. Domenici Institute for Public Policy.
