Welcome to the University of New Mexico!


UNM Provost James Holloway

There are few events as affirming to the life of a university as the joining of new colleagues to the community of discovery that is at our core.  I am excited that you have elected to commence your career here at UNM, uniting with a university that we call “the University For New Mexico.”  Our state is a special place, comprising a diversity of peoples, a diversity of landscapes, and a diversity of cultures that are to be found nowhere else.  Our university is dedicated to supporting a distinct student body that is unlike that of any other R1 institution, and is dedicated to serving the state through our missions of education, service, patient care, and discovery.  Having you with us, to add your intellectual talents, your creativity, and your energy, to this mission is wonderful, and we are eager to support your success here in Albuquerque.


Welcome to the Lobo Family!

Welcome new faculty!

We are very excited that you will be joining our scholarly community, and we know that you will find UNM a stimulating and rewarding place to work.  We will be holding an in-person New Faculty Orientation on Monday, August 16, from 8:30 am to 3:15 pm, followed by a meeting led by United Academics of UNM, UNM’s faculty union.  A reception will follow at the home of UNM President Garnett Stokes, on the UNM campus. 

In addition to the in-person orientation, we will post additional materials on the university’s learning management system. This will include detailed slides regarding employee benefits such as health and retirement plans, about which you will need to make decisions in the first 60 days of your employment.  It will be important to set aside some time to review these materials before August 16, as there is too much detail to present during a live session, and we will want to focus our in-person time on answering your questions.  We will be in contact with you about when and how to access the online materials. We all look forward to meeting you in August!
