Utilize an equity and inclusion lens to expand opportunity; cultivate potential of students, faculty and staff at UNM; create new knowledge; and provide service by:
  • leveraging our assets as a highly research-intensive university,
  • centering the community wealth of the peoples of New Mexico and beyond, and
  • valuing all voices.


UNM campuses – from classrooms to communal spaces, from events to ethos – are inherently inclusive, accessible and readily accommodating to all students, staff, faculty, administration, and community members, inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression (SOGIE), religion, first-generation college status, ability/disability status, and all other categories/identities.
