UNM Humanities Mentor Program

How do I get to work with a mentor?

As you transfer to UNM, mentors are assigned based on your intended major. Your mentor will be a graduate student pursuing a Master's or PhD degree in your major, and very possibly was a transfer student from a community college to a 4-year university, like you! They can give you tips on navigating the university system, and they have the scoop on internship and research 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.

How can I find more information?

For more information and to get involved please contact Danielle Berrien, Transfer Education Specialist, Mellon NM Humanities Now! Program dberrien@unm.edu, 505.277.4621 

UNM Summer Southwest Mellon Academy

The purpose of Summer Academy is to create a seamless transfer pathway for CNM students to UNM, where students develop critical thinking and research skills for academic success. Students can earn six credits toward a UNM degree, a stipend, and mentoring for success as a UNM Lobo student. Courses are Financial Aid eligible and can be transferred back to CNM to be counted towards your CNM program completion.

For more information contact Danielle Berrien, Transfer Education Specialist, Mellon NM Humanities Now! Program dberrien@unm.edu, (505) 277-4621.
