PAW (Professional & Academic Workshop) is a consortium of student support organizations who offer workshops and lectures 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 PAW-tners work together to assess workshops, provide certificates of completion, and coordinate marketing.
Navigate the menu below to discover the wide variety of FREE workshops available to you. Many of these workshops are developed for graduate students, but are also open to undergraduates, faculty, and staff.
Conducting research with integrity is a matter of excellence. As researchers, writers, scholars, and producers of creative works in 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 and adherence to university expectations regarding academic integrity, responsible conduct of research, and other scholarly activities. We offer a number of free workshop opportunities for students, faculty, and staff each semester, including the Responsible Conduct of Research (or RCR) workshop series. RCR workshops help students and faculty explore research ethics and the impacts they have on science. Federal funding agencies mandate RCR certification (a minimum of 8 hours of face-to-face instruction) for those who are funded by federal dollars. At UNM we believe participating in RCR training and discussing the real-life ethical issues and dilemmas that we face during our careers is just as important as the mandate itself.

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.
