Welcome Students!


The Office for Diversity is perhaps best known for its educational pipeline programs, entitled HEALTH NM (Hope, Enrichment, And Learning Transform Health in New Mexico). HEALTH NM supports New Mexican students, from traditionally undeserved or underrepresented groups, to succeed in health careers by offering academic and psychosocial support to students. All of our programs are driven by values of asset based learning, community based participatory programming, social justice, and health equity. Additionally, we have incorporated four main pedagogical methods: service learning, cultural humility/competency, identity formation, and Reciprocal Information Corridors or family and community involvement.
