ACADEMIC INTEGRITY & RESEARCH ETHICS

academic integrity and research compliance

Conducting research with integrity is a matter of excellence. As researchers, writers, scholars, students, producers of creative works, teachers and members of the University of New Mexico community, we are all expected to follow guidelines, policies, and procedures that represent UNM values with regard to responsible conduct of research, professional ethics, and academic integrity.

AIRE provides you with tools and resources to improve your awareness of responsibilities for learning and adhering to university expectations regarding academic integrity, responsible conduct of research, and other scholarly activities.

STEM CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Achievement, Exploration Opportunities & Networking

Achievement, Exploration Opportunities & Networking for STEM students is a collaborative effort across many interdisciplinary programs at the University of New Mexico. The focus of AEON is to strengthen skills, build connections, and provide resources for the success of STEM students, regardless of their specific field of study. We attain these goals by offering various workshops throughout the semester, open to all UNM students. 

Students for STEM Success (S3) is a student-centered, STEM Gateway initiative that is focused on strengthening skills and building connections that enhance the overall experience for STEM students at the University of New Mexico.

Together, the mission of AEON and S3 is to help STEM students make connections to others with similar interests, with their chosen department earlier in their degree pathway and to programs, support services, and workshops that will improve the mastery of their own learning skills and facilitate STEM degree attainment. By establishing a cooperative student network beginning as soon as students arrive on campus we can build a truly integrative STEM community that facilitates STEM degree attainment for the diverse student body of the University of New Mexico. We also provide a diversity of workshops for both undergraduate and graduate students at UNM. 

Upcoming events can be found on the AEON Page of the STEM Gateway program, the S3 Google calendar (which can be directly added to your mobile device using this server address: https://www.google.com/calendar/ical/s3atunm%40gmail.com/public/basic.ics) or, you can receive email reminders by signing up to the S3 listserv by sending an email to s3atunm@gmail.com with the subject “subscribe”.
