The University of New Mexico mourns the unspeakable loss of so many lives in Orlando. The LGBTQ community—long oppressed and subject to violence—is marked by exemplary love, strength and resiliency. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. This incident has impacted all of us from Orlando to Albuquerque, particularly the LGBTQ, Latino and Muslim communities, as well as individuals with intersections of these identities. We are reminded this is not only a time of mourning, but also a time for reaching out and connecting with each other’s humanity. The University of New Mexico stands with the faculty, staff and students and the LGBTQ community during this difficult time.
The LGBTQ Resource Center is a home for many of our LGBTQ faculty, staff and students and their staff is available to reach out to anyone affected by this tragedy. To learn more about what UNM is doing in the wake of this incident, please go to http://lgbtqrc.unm.edu/about/news.html
Welcome to the Division for Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Website! This is an exciting year full of opportunity to engage our University community in efforts that will promote Inclusive Excellence. Inclusive Excellence means that we are moving beyond “representational diversity” (which UNM has had for a long time) and integrating diversity and excellence by bringing together diverse worldviews, diverse research ideas and the ability to teach to multiple ways of learning and knowing. In building Inclusive Excellence our students are better prepared to work and interact in a diverse world.
