Graduate and Undergraduate Certificate

What happens when faculty and students from different disciplines explore the contours of race and social justice? The "Race & Social Justice Interdisciplinary Certificate" is designed as an area of specialization for community members and students pursuing a humanities, social sciences, art, or professional degree at UNM

The Institute has no dedicated staff, operating or programing funds. We exist as a labor of love visible through all the partnerships and volunteers that have generously contributed to our mission over the years. Our hope is to produce a brief report so we can support the sustainability, collective work and impact of the work of the Institute as the mark of a twenty first century innovative, relevant and impactful university.
