Non-credit classes, seminars, and workshops are offered through the Community Education. Designed to meet the needs of the widest possible cross-section of the community, these classes provide opportunities to improve upon or learn new skills in personal, interpersonal, professional, career, and creative areas. Community Education instructors are chosen for their expertise in particular fields of interest and UNMG is fortunate to benefit from the contributions of impressive local talent. Our goal is to create a stimulating and comfortable environment that encourages exploration of new ideas and experiences for kids, teens, adults, and families.

Any company or agency interested in Workforce Development is encouraged to contact UNM Gallup Community Based Education and Workforce Development (CBEWD). We will work with all agencies to develop qualified workforce to fill the job need of the local service area.

The department is constantly updating the application folder for instructors to teach heavy equipment and general construction and other workforce areas. Call Denise Silva at (505) 863-7738 if you think you have the background, knowledge, skills, and ability to teach in these areas.
