Transition Communities

A Transition Community is a three credit first-year seminar that helps students excel in their first year at UNM by learning college success skills and building community. Twenty-five students enroll in a community oriented seminar where they will learn how to better navigate the University, and have an overall, smoother transition to university life. A primary goal of the seminar is to excel in the core or other academic course, while learning about majors, careers, and college success skills. There will be several courses created for the general student population as well as courses de- signed for unique cohorts at UNM by major, affiliations, or interest areas.

Transition Communities are explored through UNM's UNIV 101 course.  UNIV 101 is three credit course that is designed to help students successfully transition into life and learning at the University of New Mexico.  Students can expect to be introduced to the following topics:
