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.All sessions for this workshop series are on Tuesdays from 4:00 – 5:50 PM in Castetter (Biology) Room 258. Participants who attend five of the six sessions may be eligible to receive a certificate of completion for RCR training from the AIRE office. Certificates are valid for four years. Additionally, students can receive a 1 hour credit in this course; to do so, please register for either Research Ethics – Biol 402 sec 047 CRN 50077 (for undergraduates) or Biol 502 sec 047 CRN 50809 (for graduate students). A Dropbox will be set up for this course containing materials, reading, and other resources. Contact Dr. Gannon 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

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 email@example.com with the subject “subscribe”.
Lunch will be provided at all the workshops listed below!

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
