The 2014 Shared Knowledge Conference (SKC) is a regional event planned and hosted by students and partners of the University of New Mexico. Intent on celebrating diversity, multiple forms of research, and scholarly endeavors, we encourage presentations covering a range of formats and topics. The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for students from a variety of academic institutions and disciplines to share their scholarship, gain access to new ideas, and develop their professional leadership skills. See last year's conference...
The conference provides an opportunity for graduate/professional and undergraduate students to present their research and gain presentation experience, to serve as role models for other students, and to participate in networking and social events that help them plan their academic and professional careers. The event also served as a vehicle for student and faculty networking and as a forum for students, instructors, and industry professionals to share information, ideas, experiences, and advice.

Faculty continue to be the most effective supporters of the Shared Knowledge Conference by inviting organizing staff to present at their classes, mandating student participation, and attending conference events. Faculty will find several opportunities to participate in this year's conference from joint student/faculty presentations to serving on judge panels. The conference will also provide a space for faculty to share major research projects they are leading, as well as venues for faculty to be introduced to the work students and community members are undergoing that may be directly related to their own work.

Nonprofit professionals, state agencies, and community scholars/researchers are invited to play the all-important role of connecting the work done in the academic arena to the issues the wider New Mexico community face on a daily basis.
