Daniel Pink, author of “A Whole New Mind,” says that a crucial need in the 21st century is a story that makes sense of one’s data.
In this and following columns, I hope to begin telling the stories of UNM-Los Alamos as it re-envisions itself and what it can do best.
What we have done and still do best is teaching. The first part of our story is to remind everyone that we are one of the best two-year transfer schools in the state of New Mexico.
We offer something valuable in these hard economic times. A student who gets general education courses at UNM-LA is prepared to transfer anywhere from MIT or Columbia to UNM and NMSU.
Students who take their first two years here to save money, develop foundational science, math, and English skills in small classes and have free tutoring available at UNM-LA.
UNM-LA keeps its standards rigorous because we believe that the students of New Mexico can learn at the level needed for college transfer or for workforce entry.
Our transfer studies have shown that our students succeed better at UNM in further math, science and English classes than do those who started at UNM-Albuquerque.
More that 75 percent get As in classes at UNM. More than 95 percent get As, Bs or Cs.
