Grand Challenges Launch

Empowering Our STATE of Minds

November 14, 2018 / 9:00am / SUB Ballroom C

Research, innovation and collaboration are part of our institutional DNA.

Increasingly, our peer-institutions are tapping into their research power to effect meaningful change for their communities - supporting policies and advocating investments that will revolutionize cities, states and the world.

As our state's leading research institution, and the University for New Mexico, we will soon be contributing to these advancements through the pursuit of our own institutional Grand Challenges.

The UNM Grand Challenges Initiative (GCI) is an opportunity to broaden our student and faculty perspectives and better serve New Mexico by providing opportunities to collaborate through interdisciplinary research and problem solving.

We will launch this effort on Nov. 14 at 9 a.m. in SUB Ballroom C, with an introduction to our Grand Challenges Initiative, including facilitated discussion to determine broad areas of inquiry.

Join us for the Grand Challenges Launch and bring your ideas for how UNM can continue generating new knowledge and understanding for the social good.
