The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) Region 3 sponsors an Emerging Leader Award. The purpose of the Emerging Leader Award is to motivate and prepare a librarian for a position of leadership in an academic health sciences library. With oversight from the NNLM Region 3 Directors’ Advisory Board, the awarded librarian is paired with a director who will serve as their mentor. While this opportunity is offered through Region 3, HSLIC employees are eligible to apply as the opportunity is sponsored by the South Central Academic Medical Libraries Consortium, for which HSLIC is a member library.
The Leadership Fellows Program seeks candidates who are emerging leaders in health sciences libraries and who are passionate about the importance of leadership skills and knowledge to the future of academic health sciences libraries. Leadership fellows join a small cohort of like-minded colleagues and become part of a network of fellows and mentors who have gone through the program over prior years. Fellows are paired with mentors who are academic health sciences library directors. In addition to the individual relationship with their mentors, fellows benefit from working collaboratively with other fellows and mentors. Experienced Program faculty and mentors will provide content and facilitation for the cohort. The program blends online learning and in-person activities to create a strong learning community. This is an opportunity for mentees.
The mission for the HSC Staff Mentoring Program is to provide HSC staff with experiences and resources to explore the many opportunities for growth at the university. The goal of this program is to help improve the mentee's knowledge, skills and abilities as well as to understand the HSC culture. Mentors and mentees also have opportunities to network and exchange ideas. Applications open in the spring of each year. This is an opportunity for mentees.
The Mentoring Institute develops, coordinates, and integrates evidence-based, effective practices of mentoring into research, consulting, and training activities at the University of New Mexico (UNM). Through the application of instructional design standards, the Institute provides training and certification services for a diverse array of staff, faculty and students, in a centralized effort to recruit, train and develop qualified mentors for the University, the City of Albuquerque, and the greater New Mexico community.
The Mentoring Institute does not replace or direct existing mentoring programs. Rather, it provides a variety of services to these programs. The Mentoring Institute aims to build up current mentoring programs and enhance the culture of mentoring within the University, and the state it serves. This is an opportunity for beginning and experienced mentors.

It is sponsored by the NIH-Funded National Research Mentoring Networks.This is an opportunity for Mentors.
