University of New Mexico

The primary goals of the University of New Mexico (UNM) FIRST program are to recruit, promote, and retain a diverse cohort of biomedical faculty (this includes obtaining NIHR01s or equivalent funding) and to systemically transform UNM institutional culture toward inclusive excellence. This includes providing ongoing support for UNM faculty, chairs, and UNM leadership to implement innovative campus-wide policies and processes to increase hiring, promotion, and retention of female and diverse faculty.
