The Southwest Multidisciplinary Academic Achievement Research Team (SMAART) works with schools, researchers, educational organizations, and community members to understand what factors improve students’ educational performance.

Based at the University of New Mexico, SMAART focuses on the diverse cultural landscapes and educational needs of the American Southwest to increase and support students’ educational attainment.

SMAART believes that educational success happens with all students in all contexts. Through research and educational application, we can enhance students’ academic achievement and empower students in the classroom.
