Welcome to the Office of the President
Garnett S. Stokes was selected as the 23rd president of The University of New Mexico on November 2, 2017.
Soon after taking office on March 1, 2018, Stokes announced her intention to better understand the campus, the communities that surround it and the state of New Mexico. She initiated a multipronged approach to listening to students, faculty, alumni, staff, and community members, including participating in nearly 100 events during her first 100 days in office.
She spoke to more than 1,320 New Mexicans on the Statewide Listening Tour, which helped frame her immediate presidential initiatives of campus safety, supporting student Veterans, and furthering the University’s mission of world-class research.
