Faculty and Staff
Our faculty members exhibit professionalism, passion and a commitment to education. But their unparalleled dedication goes beyond teaching and research. It extends to the community where they contribute to the intellectual and cultural life in New Mexico by sharing their talents and time.
The outreach and advocacy they provide is especially critical given their expertise in high need areas and the educational challenges that the state faces. You’ll find our faculty running professional development seminars for teachers, hosting summer institutes on campus, acting as resources for local schools and serving on local, state and national committees in their fields of expertise. Students aren’t sidelined either—they are always encouraged to participate in outreach efforts, academic and non-academic settings, creativity, language learning, language retention, bilingualism, literacy—and then use what they learn to shape educational policy.
