About the Program
The University of New Mexico (UNM) is a strong leader in providing educational programs and opportunities for Hispanic students. According to the Hispanic Business Magazine, the UNM School of Law ranks number one in the nation for Hispanic students with the School of Medicine and Anderson School of Management at number six and the School of Engineering at seven. UNM has always been a University that is aware of the state, regional and national obligation to meet the educational needs and services of the Hispanic community.
The National Hispanic Youth Research and Leadership Program is part of our University initiative to lead the nation in providing opportunities and quality education to the Hispanic community. The University has the capacity and resources to provide a strong program for national Hispanic organizations to provide educational and professional opportunities for the youth of our country. The UNM National Hispanic Youth Research and Leadership Program’s goal is to focus Hispanic youth on the opportunities in pursuing a degree and the careers available in the STEM fields. It is also our goal to build a new generation of Hispanic leaders in our communities.
