Impostor Syndrome - Learning that you DO belong in STEM (Presentation)

STEM degree pathways are challenging, and often result in students’ questioning their abilities to succeed in their chosen STEM path. This workshop breaks down the silence around questioning your own abilities, intelligence, or place in STEM. This workshop provides a forum in which students can meet and interact with fellow STEM majors, move out of the isolation they may feel, and build a community of positive, empowered STEM students.

Library Research – Strategies for STEM Students

This workshop explores the myriad of library resources available for UNM students. Held in Centennial Science Library, in the heart of the engineering sector of UNM, students are guided in effective use of online and physical library resources and search systems, and are introduced to personnel with STEM field-specific knowledge. Benefits of attending this workshop include more effective research skills, improvement in technical writing, and an increase in knowledge scope that will carry students beyond their classes and into their STEM careers.
