Welcome to UNM

On behalf of the entire Lobo community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to The University of New Mexico. As New Mexico’s flagship university—and the only Research 1 institution in the State—UNM is home to transformative, cutting-edge research, smart and compassionate health care providers, and brilliant, dedicated faculty and staff serving the educational needs of one of the most curious and diverse student bodies in the nation.

With a state and campus culture rooted in more than three centuries of American Indian, Hispanic, and Anglo history and influence, we at UNM take strength in our diversity and pride in our unity. Since 1889, we’ve been a vital part of New Mexico’s economic prosperity and rich cultural heritage. And with four branch campuses and collaborative relationships with communities across the state, we’re shaping the landscape that makes New Mexico a great place to live, work, learn, and grow.

It is my privilege to lead the Lobo community of more than 25,000 students and 3,000 faculty and staff. Working together, we’re transforming lives and changing the world.
