Iyona Freeland July 19, 2016 UNIV 101: Diversity and Citizenship Final Daniel Begay Diversity and Citizenship At the University of New Mexico (UNM) diversity and citizenship stand as one. The university puts an important emphasis on the diverse community and exhilarating experience UNM offers its students. While at UNM diversity is seen everywhere, students from all over the world and varies places in the United States. There are many services that UNM has benefitting and utilizing the services for students of all ethnicities. Diversity is a central aspect of the university as a whole, knowing that your community accepts and supports you plays a major role in the college life. On top of classes, we need somewhere to fit in and the programs and resources available at UNM give us security and a sense of belonging which are feelings crucial to anyone away from home. No one group is singled out and being different is embraced. UNM offers certain programs specifically for these groups of people finding their place at UNM. While being at UNM for 5 weeks I have experienced so much in little time. There are multiple programs present at UNM that aim specifically towards a passion, similar interest, individual characteristics, ethnicity, race, group, such as yourself or something you possess; they also accept people who are not of the same origin or ethnicity, but it’s as simple as sharing a common goal or are also looking for a place to call their home on campus. The American Indian Student Services are a part of my home on campus. We came to this program aware that other people from different tribes will be joining us, but I would have never suspected it to be this engaging and welcoming. The American Indian Summer Bridge(AISB) program gave me a place where I feel safe and content, they opened the university up to me and exposed me to resources I could have never found on my own.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
