2014 Mentoring Conference

Mentoring Conference 2015

Tuesday, October 20 thru Friday, October 23


Each year, the Mentoring Institute hosts its annual mentoring conference. Featuring four keynote/plenary sessions and over 300 presentations total, the 2014 conference brought close to 700 people to New Mexico.  We aim to host a broad constituency, which includes divisions of higher education, academic researchers, educators, community leaders, administrators, non-profit partners, government agencies, and other professionals.

For the 2015 conference we anticipate a rich mix of conversation, networking opportunities, hands-on workshops, and engagement with professionals from a diverse variety of disciplines.


“I am writing to express my comments regarding the conference. It was absolutely outstanding! This year was my first time attending and my doctoral student identified your conference. I really learned a lot and was able to communicate with colleagues throughout the country. UNM really has a strong resource with your institute. Every aspect of the conference was very professional, organized, thorough, and effective. I truly enjoyed participating and attending. You provided a perfect conference, perfect organization, and perfect location! I really appreciated being able to interact with, communicate, and learn from professionals from different disciplines. Again, the conference was very valuable. Please feel free to forward my comments to your University administration. Thank you!” 


 Lisa D. Hobson, Prairie View A&M University
