With more than 250 PhDs awarded since 1950, the UNM History Department celebrates the diverse backgrounds and multiple career achievements of our gifted alumni. Discover the strengths of our alumni network and help UNM prepare for the challenges facing history graduate education and the humanities today. With the help of one another we can foster a dynamic professional network and develop a robust set of resources and funding opportunities for our community. Help us map this new chapter of our growing professional community of graduates in the UNM History Graduate Program by identifying the real and symbolic values of the UNM History PhD.

1:30pm-3:00pm Session #2: WHAT ARE OUR GOALS? (Bobo Room, 3rd Floor)
Group instructions and then divide into small discussion groups.

Our PhD alumni reside in 32 out of 50 states and more than a handful work and live abroad. Determine the possibilities and advantages of this alumni community by developing an ongoing collaboration with students, faculty, and university administrators. The department hopes to provide our extensive history family with a more robust professional network, new funding and mentorship opportunities, long-term career and professional guidance as well as, an institutionally supported alumni advisory board to guide future efforts. Activating our alumni network creates real benefits for our community and builds a UNM consortium to advocate on behalf of history and the humanities everywhere.

Group instructions and then divide into small discussion groups.

When it comes to crafting a historian’s life, we take different career paths and rely on a variety of resources. Derived from our communal expertise in public engagement, analytics, K-12 education, and our vast external connections, we can assemble a pool of resources available to all. This session will survey how alumni and the university can best contribute dynamic, expansive, specialized, and cutting-edge resources that answers our current demands and anticipates our future professional needs.
