NM EPSCoR Education, Outreach & Diversity
Diversity Innovation Working Groups are similar to D-IWGs (below) but focus on challenges associated with engaging and retaining women, members of under-represented groups, and first-generation college students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in New Mexico. The next call for D-IWGs will open February 1, 2017.

Led by Santa Fe Community College, the FLPDI will develop an institute for STEM faculty from NM community and Tribal colleges and non-research universities to improve undergraduate STEM instruction for diverse student populations.
All Seed Awards have been awarded for the Energize New Mexico project; no additional awards will be made.
The intent of the ISA program is to increase the access of undergraduate students, especially women and members of underrepresented groups, to research experiences by increasing non-PhD granting institutions’ capacity to provide research experiences for students.

Natives in STEM is a new collaborative project between NM EPSCoR and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. The project aims to increase Native American identity and sense of belonging in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) by creating and sharing positive images and stories of Native STEM professionals. Images will be presented as posters and stories will be shared through the NativesInSTEM.org website.
NM STEM Connection provides information about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) resources for NM students, teachers, parents, counselors, and administrators as well as higher education faculty/staff as well as community members interested in the promotion of STEM education in New Mexico.
Over a million years ago a supervolcano exploded in northern New Mexico, sending over 300 cubic kilometers of ash into the atmosphere and leaving behind a crater over 12 miles in diameter. This extraordinary crater is called the Valles Caldera and in the year 2000 became the Valles Caldera National Preserve. The website, Teacher’s Guide to Valles Caldera: The Science, connects teachers and students to the research taking place in the Valles Caldera and help them uncover the crosscutting concepts that drive the Earth's systems. Read more about the Teachers guide to the Valles Caldera at http://vcnpearthsystems.nmepscor.net.
The Undergraduate Visualization and Modeling Network (UVMN) provides professional development for instructors (faculty) and students from Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUI) in the three consortium states—ID, NM, and NV. The UVMN provides an opportunity to engage diverse students in undergraduate research and Cyberinfrastructured-enabled education. The program has three components: a summer workshop, educational module development and implementation, and an on-going virtual community.
