Community Partnerships

Some academic programs sponsored by the Innovation Academy focus on helping students develop businesses of their own. These new businesses could someday be incubated at UNM’s InnovateABQ campus. Public engagement is also central to UNM’s mission. Innovation Academy students can use their talent and skills to solve problems that matter to Albuquerque and the State of New Mexico, as they are learning by doing. Students can contribute to economic development, community capacity building, improved outcome in health, education and other areas of common interest.
