The 2015 Unidos Equity Leadership Institute

The Title V Unidos Cooperative Grant, in collaboration with Adams State University, University of New Mexico-Taos, and New Mexico Highlands University, will present the 2015 Unidos Equity Leadership Institute.

The Unidos Equity Leadership Institute embraces efforts in achieving inclusive excellence, cultural responsiveness, and building leadership for equity. Scheduled to be held in Fort Garland, Colorado at the Trinchera Ranch from July 13- 17, 2015, the Institute is open to faculty and staff who are genuinely interested in engaging in professional development that will focus on identifying barriers that impede the teaching and learning of students from underrepresented groups.

The Unidos Equity Leadership Institute will be a residential, off-campus event. Full participation and commitment is expected during the week of Jul 13-17. Full time faculty, without summer contractual obligations to their University, will be eligible for a $1000.00 stipend and an opportunity to submit a proposal for a $2000.00 Teaching Improvement Grant. These incentives are available upon successful completion of the Institute.
