The National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) recently announced UNM-Taos Dual Enrollment Program’s proposed session, “Expanding Dual Enrollment: Hispanic and Tribal Communities in Rural Southwest,” will be presented during the organization's 2021 national conference.

The two-day conference, Creating Bright Futures Through Concurrent & Dual Enrollment, begins Tuesday, Oct. 26 in Florida. 

NACEP is the only national organization supporting programs, practitioners and policy to advance concurrent and dual enrollment programs. The organization sought proposals that engage attendees, provide insights and solutions, identify trends and innovations, and elevate voices from the field in a variety of tracks.

“This national platform usually selects proposals from very large universities and K-12 school districts,” said Bonavita Quinto-MacCallum, UNM-Taos Dual Enrollment Programs specialist.

UNM-Taos panel presenters include:

  • Doctoral Candidate Roberta Vigil, UNM-Taos senior operations manager
  • Bonavita Quinto-MacCallum, Dual Enrollment Program specialist
  • Loyola Bird, Dulce High School English teacher
  • Post-Doctoral Fellow Trisha Martinez, Dual Enrollment support

“We are very excited, as this is a phenomenal opportunity to highlight the amazing work of UNM-Taos with our dual credit partners,” Quinto-MacCallum said. “It does take a village.”
