UNM Humanities Mentor Program

How do I get to work with a mentor?

  1. As you transfer to UNM, you will be assigned a mentor based on your intended major. Your mentor is pursuing a Masters or Ph.D. degree in your major, and very possibly was a transfer student from a community college (CNM) to a 4-year university (UNM), like you! They can give you tips on navigating the system here, and they have the scoop on internship and research (with UNM faculty) possibilities too. Your mentor’s goal is to guide you through the process of becoming a successful student at UNM, connecting you with people and resources to do so!
