The Victoria D. de Sanchez Teaching Education Center (TEC) is a modern, three-level building housing classrooms, two interactive television rooms, smart classrooms, faculty offices and an instructional materials evaluation center. We are located at:

Victoria D. de Sanchez

New Mexico Highlands University

1031 11th Street

Las Vegas, NM 87701

The TEC building also serves as a home for Vistas Sin Limites, the Northeast Regional Education Cooperative, the Center for the Education & Study of Diverse Populations, Advanced Placement-New Mexico, the Highlands Counselor Training Center and MESA-Northern New Mexico.

Established by the School of Education, the Center for the Education and Study of Diverse Populations studies diverse populations whose needs are unmet and who encounter barriers to services and opportunities, and develops strategies for removing those barriers.

The School of Education houses a regional Instructional Materials Evaluation Center that contains publisher-supplied samples of state-approved texts and materials for review by school district administrators, teachers, parents, and education faculty and students. The center also functions as an institutional curriculum library, providing selected samples of resources for short-term loan.

The Literacy Council of Northeastern New Mexico staffs an adult literacy center and provides services within the Instructional Materials Evaluation Center.

Finally, the School of Education offers selected undergraduate and graduate programs at the Centers in Santa Fe, Rio Rancho and Farmington with the cooperation of the Educational Outreach Services Program.
