Advance at UNM has developed talking points for members of search committees to use during candidate interviews and visits to help highlight all of Albuquerque’s positive aspects.
Do you have questions about UNM policies?
Understanding and interpreting university policy can be tricky if you don’t know where to start. To help, we’ve put together this guide of faculty policies, which you can also download here.
Can’t find what you’re looking for? Found it but aren’t sure how to interpret it?
In general, if you have questions about a UNM policy or you need more information on interpreting one, start with your department administrator or department chair. If they’re not sure, then most colleges have an associate dean that handles policy issues. For example, in Arts and Sciences, Senior Associate Dean Phil Ganderton (gandinin at unm dot edu) handles policy questions.
And if the college doesn’t know, then Interim Associate Provost for Faculty Development Alex Lubin (alubin at unm dot edu) is the person to contact.
What if you want to ask some questions in confidence? Contact a member of the Advance at UNM leadership or email us at advance at unm dot edu.
We’ve compiled some research about how students evaluate faculty in STEM disciplines. See how data generated by student evaluations are subject to gender- and race-related biases in our brief literature review.

The literature on letters of recommendation for faculty candidates suggests that there are substantive differences between letters written for male candidates and those written for women. This document summarizes the findings from that literature. Keeping these issues in mind when writing and reading letters of recommendation may help to reduce some of the gender bias in the faculty hiring process.LOR_Handout (1)
Adhering to national best practices during faculty searches will help the University of New Mexico recruit and retain excellent faculty. In addition, conducting the search fairly and equitably will help insure that current UNM faculty who participate in searches feel that their perspectives are respected and valued, and that they derive satisfaction from the process.
A polished and professional search will project a positive image of UNM to scientific and scholarly communities in the United States and abroad.
