Call For Proposals

The 27th annual NMHEAR Conference, scheduled for February 25 and 26, 2021, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will provide an opportunity for faculty, staff, and administrators to share ideas about assessment and retention initiatives that promote student success. The theme for this conference is “Assessing Remote Learning: Response to COVID-19.”

The mission of the NMHEAR Conference is to provide a forum for a wide variety of innovative assessment and retention presentations.

  • Assessment and/or retention in K-16 partnerships
  • Title III and Title V projects that have improved student retention and success
  • Assessment projects that examine minority and at-risk students
  • Assessment projects of student services
  • Assessment of Distance Education
  • Retention of Native American and Hispanic students
  • Accountability and Quality
  • Dual Credit
  • Assessing General Education
