UNM Provost James Holloway

“Welcome to UNM! It’s not often that the provost welcoming new faculty to campus is a new faculty member himself. Yet here we are! I started at the University of New Mexico on July 1, 2019 as a professor of nuclear engineering, and as provost and executive vice president for academic affairs. I’m excited to be joining the University of New Mexico, the most diverse research university in the nation, a majority minority institution that will set the model for the research university of the future. I’m honored and excited to be here, and hopeful for the future. And perhaps like you, I’m not quite sure yet where to check out a book from the library.

As provost, faculty and student success are my primary goals. You come here with aspirations to teach, to learn, to grow, and to contribute to the success of this amazing state. My job, and our job as an institution, is to help you achieve these aspirations. Through your work, our mission will be achieved, and our duty to the state and to society will be accomplished.

To get your work here started, UNM has resources and events designed to help you develop a successful and meaningful career. I encourage you to fully participate in our New Faculty Orientation activities to learn about available resources to support your success, and through you, the success of our students. 
I look forward to seeing you around campus.”
