The NMSU Biology Department with the support of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is increasing persistence in science by nurturing students’ interest in science and providing support for them to succeed in their majors.This is accomplished by:

  • enhancing NMSU biology courses to incorporate a research-based component,
  • by providing in and out of classroom support to students through peer instructors and peer advisers, and
  • by offering undergraduate research opportunities.
