Celebrating UNM School of Law Alumna Marsha (Head) Hardeman
February 15, 2022
Marsha (Head) Hardeman hadn’t always envisioned herself as the multi-talented law school graduate, educator, and civil rights advocate that she is now. Born in Indiana, Hardeman originally studied sociology and psychology. Fascinated by the human psyche and why people do the things they do, she knew she wanted to work with people. She had a passion for helping people and being involved in her community and saw these fields as ways to continue doing that professionally. It was not until she moved to New Mexico with her husband in the 1970s that she thought about graduate school, and what her next steps might be.
