Welcome to the University of New Mexico!
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!
