2021 Spring Virtual Development Days

New Mexico Highlands University welcomes our new and current faculty and staff to the 2020 – 2021 Academic Year Professional Development:
Critical Conversations on Diversity in a Digital Age  


I acknowledge that we are on the ancestral territories of the Tanoan tribes including the 19 Pueblos, the Apache, the Comanche, the Diné, the Kiowa, and the Ute. We pay our respects to elders both past and present. And, we recognize these Peoples were displaced to accommodate others in the name of progress. With humility, we recognize and respect all Indigenous Peoples, their histories, and their ties to the land.
