One of the greatest benefits The University of New Mexico offers staff is the ability to pursue education through tuition remission or professional development activities. To assist staff in taking advantage of this benefit, the Staff Council Student Success Committee is hosting Staff as Students virtual events.

The Staff as Students initiative provides UNM staff the opportunity to learn about and courses to develop professionally and personally. Staff can learn about services regarding admission, registration, tuition remission benefit and advisement.

Each weekday starting Monday, April 5 through Friday, April 9, there will be two lunchtime Zoom sessions in place of the traditional Staff as Students event held in the SUB. Each session will have a different school or department presenting. Click here to see the detailed schedule of presenters.
