PAW (Professional & Academic Workshop) is a consortium of student support organizations who offer workshops and/or speaker series for the benefit and improved success of students. PAW was created through Graduate Studies to reduce redundancy of offerings, improve attendance and relevancy of the workshops offered, and to provide a current calendar to alert participants of upcoming events. Our PAWt-ners work together to assess workshops, provide certificates of completion, and coordinate marketing.
Navigate the menu below to discover the wide variety of workshops available to you, ranging from teaching to research to funding and more! Many of these workshops are developed for graduate students; however, they would also be informative and useful for undergraduate students, staff, and faculty.
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.
The Responsible Conduct of Research (or RCR) workshop series, offered by AIRE, is a course of study intended for the researcher to explore research ethics and the impacts it has on science. Federal funding agencies have provided new regulations mandating RCR certification of those who are funded by federal dollars. At UNM we believe the mandate is not as important as it is to participate in RCR training and to discuss real-life issues and dilemmas that we face during our careers.
Research Ethics Academic Year 2015-2016 Course and Workshop OVERVIEW. Please see particular sections for details of each series or presentation. For a 1 hour credit in this course, please register through the usual process using the CRN (as listed below). 1-credit courses require 800 minutes (13 hours) of instruction or activity. RCR certification requires 8 hours (minimum) of face-to-face (or mixed methods) content discussion. Contact Dr. Gannon (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for further information.
Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have about academic integrity or research ethics. Thank you for your commitment not just to doing research, but to doing research well. Workshop evaluation

The Project for New Mexico Graduates of Color (PNMGC) is a student based organization that is working to build community among historically underrepresented students at the University of New Mexico. PNMGC was founded during the 2002-03 academic year by a group of UNM graduate students of color who recognized the need for an organization that could provide them with various forms of academic, cultural, and leadership support. Currently, PNMGC works with both undergraduate and graduate students to help them succeed and grow while at UNM. Their programming includes undergraduate outreach initiatives, leadership workshops and retreats, monthly social gatherings, academic research presentation opportunities.
