The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded researchers at the University of New Mexico (UNM), New Mexico Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (NM EPSCoR), and partner institutions from five states in the western half of the U.S. (Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming) $10 million to address the under-representation of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines and workforce.

An EPSCoR Retrospective

Author
William Michener

I will be retiring from EPSCoR and UNM on March 1st. Now is a good time to take a brief look back over the past roughly 15 years that I have served as Director of New Mexico EPSCoR and the 21 years that I have been at UNM. I joined UNM in 2000, the year that coincided with New Mexico officially becoming an EPSCoR state.
