The PRLP seeks to provide students with opportunities to utilize leadership skills in new settings and situations. Sponsored programs challenge students physically and mentally, and range from ski trips and backpacking to camping and fishing across Northern New Mexico.

The Peer Resource Leadership Program sponsors optional outdoor excursions for incoming students prior to the start of the fall semester.

PRLP Mission:

The Peer Resource Leadership Program is a student outreach organization that facilitates personal growth, trust, and creativity of its participants through healthy risk taking in the outdoors.


Peer Resource Leaders are members of the NMHU student body who strive to enhance the college experience by creating awareness of issues and aspects of college life. They do so by offering a variety of outdoor experiences aimed at positive risk-taking, self-growth, trust, wellness, communication, and group development.

Activities offered by PRL’s may be different from other activities you have engaged in. PRL’s are not there to lead you, or even guide you. Instead, they serve as facilitators, that ensure that your outdoor excursion is safe both for you and the environment, and that It will mean something more than miles traveled or hills climbed. But rather an opportunity to learn and grow with fellow students in the great outdoors.
