The Center for Collaborative Research and Community Engagement (CCRCE) in the College of Education at the University of New Mexico welcomes community engagement and research with others. We invite affiliations with Fellows and Visiting Scholars to advance shared goals across New Mexico and beyond. Fellows and Visiting Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in the life of the CCRCE through research, scholarly activity, community engagement, and networking.

To facilitate this relationship, the CCRCE offers two designations for affiliation: Fellows and Visiting Scholars

  • Fellows can be UNM Research and Tenure-Track/Tenured Faculty; UNM Professional Staff; or a Community Representative from a Local, National, Tribal, and/or Global entity. In addition, applications will be considered from Postdoctoral Researchers. It is anticipated that Fellows will pursue research inquiry and/or collaborative engagement projects.
  • Visiting Scholar is a title reserved for scholars who are visiting the University most typically from another institute of higher education and participating in some way in its teaching or research functions or community engagement. A Visiting Scholar is a scholar established in his or her field and must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent to be considered a field expert.

Fellows and Visiting Scholars may be unfunded or funded, typically by external sources such as sabbatical leave or Fulbright Scholarship.

Appointments are up to one year and an additional year can be considered through a CCRCE review process in adherence with UNM policies and procedures. The CCRCE Advisory Board voting members will recommend action for the Director of CCRCE and the Dean of COE for final decision.

CCRCE provides office space, based on availability; access to UNM libraries and facilities; option to purchase a UNM parking pass; and, UNM email account. The CCRCE encourages affiliated individuals1 in collaboration with COE faculty to submit proposals through CCRCE.
