About the STEM Mentoring Program
SEMESTERLY DEADLINES: FEBRUARY 5 AND SEPTEMBER 5.
Matches will be announced by the following Wednesday.
---For the Fall 2020 semester, as a result of COVID-19: we ask that all participants be willing to meet either by phone call, zoom meeting, or at on an outdoor location for an in-person, yet socially distant interaction. We will have the STEM Mixer, but this will be virtual and incorporated into our already existing Networking event (with companies), having the STEM Mixer portion start 45 minutes prior to the company networking portion. We are thinking some form of breakout rooms, but details are still in the works.---
The UNM STEM Mentoring Program is open to all UNM STEM students, regardless of academic achievement. The program helps UNM STEM undergraduate students build a supportive relationship with a scientist, engineer, or other relevant professional from Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), or other local companies and organizations. Students in the program are matched with a mentor who is a STEM professional and the two of them collaborate on various informal activities to enhance their schooling experience and professional development.
(Note: We do not match with Medical professionals. For students interested in the clinical medical fields, you would like to build relationships with a health professional, or explore health-related careers, visit the Office for Pre-Health Professions at prehealthprofessions.unm.edu, or the HSC Office of Diversity Programs at hsc.unm.edu/programs/diversity/student-programs)
