May 13, 2015 -- The CNM Governing Board at their meeting May 12 revised rules to permit the lawful use of alcoholic beverages for academic purposes in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality and Tourism Programs.

Jul 16, 2015

On May 12, 2015, Resolution 2015-37 was approved by the Governing Board, enacting the following revisions to CNM’s Governing Board Handbook and Employee Handbook:

  • The following clause has been added to Governing Board Handbook Section 5.08, Employee Handbook Section 12.02 and IS-2098:  “Nothing in this policy should be construed as prohibiting the lawful use of alcoholic beverages for academic purposes in the Culinary Arts and Hospitality and Tourism Programs as long as such use is consistent with standard industry practices.”
  • These revisions will allow CNM to pursue a Governmental Liquor License and allow the Culinary Arts and Hospitality and Tourism Programs to add necessary competencies to the curriculum in order to meet industry and accreditation standards.   
  • The revision to IS-2098 includes a change to the definition of “on duty”.
