Vast majority of faculty, graduate students and staff strongly support spring break alignment

The vast majority of UNM faculty, graduate students, and staff strongly support having the university’s spring break at the same time of the break for Albuquerque Public Schools, a study by Advance at UNM has found.

Eighty two percent of faculty strongly support alignment while 79 percent of staff expressed strong support in the survey done earlier this year. Another 14 percent of faculty and graduate students somewhat support alignment, as do 15 percent of staff.

Only 4 percent of faculty, 5 percent of graduate students, and 6 percent of staff do not support aligning the breaks, according to the survey. Read more about the results, the methodology and the topic below.


As part of the survey, we also asked for open-ended comments on the topic. See them here, arranged by group.
