Graduate and Professional Student Academy

academyThe Academy provides a unique community building and professional development experience using a workshop format to offer participants support towards success as graduate or professional students here at UNM.  Specifically, the program aims to support students by providing skills training, and connecting them to resources and networks that will assist them in completing their degree program in timely manner.

We are all lifelong students with each one of us capable of teaching and learning from one another.  As such, participants will be expected to take a proactive role in promoting knowledge sharing, skill building, and experiential learning by actively engaging with content, assignments, and community.  The shared experience allows for the opportunity to build relationships that will extend beyond the university experience.

  • January 24, 2014
