CNM/UNM Branch Campus Information

A new component of the grant is assigning a UNM faculty member to serve as a liaison to the CNM and UNM Branch campuses. Campus liaisons will be expected to connect their respective department(s) and the counterpart department(s) at CNM and UNM branch campuses. Such connections may be at the course or degree curriculum level or to establish partnerships for events for students or other opportunities for faculty collaboration. We also expect the liaisons to help plan a faculty summit with their CNM and UNM Branch campus representatives. Below are the campus assignments.  

Please keep in mind that the Mellon Foundation's and our grant's focus is the importance of the Humanities in understanding the intersections between social justice, cultural diversity, and community wealth.
