Mission and Vision

Roland Sculpture Garden

The mission of the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology is to inspire appreciation for and knowledge of the diverse native arts, histories, languages, and cultures of the Greater Southwest.

Vision Statement

We have an integrated, effective staff who perform our mission with high morale and dedication through effective teamwork and sharing responsibility for projects.

Our state-of-the-art-exhibits continue to excite and inspire people to learn more about Native cultures and the anthropology and archaeology of the Greater Southwest.

We are viewed as a leader in our field resulting in increased recognition by international scholars, our funders, our stakeholders, accrediting agencies, and other museums.

We strive to improve our facilities and increase access through the digitization of our collections and the development of the Center for New Mexico Archaeology.
