UNM’s Division for Equity and Inclusion (DEI) works to enhance experiences of the faculty, staff, & students at UNM—at Central/Main/ABQ campus, HSC, and at our Branch campuses. Utilizing an equity & inclusion lens to expand opportunity & cultivate potential at UNM requires centering the community wealth of the peoples of New Mexico and beyond. DEI has recently prepared an action plan for promoting social justice to build an inclusive culture at UNM, and coordinate a University-wide strategy for increasing demographic diversity. Recently, DEI has worked to: (1) build more diverse pools for faculty and staff searches and provide resources to colleges and schools to create stronger pathways to tenure-track faculty positions; (2) coordinate college-level diversity officers to address hiring and climate issues in units; (3) educate faculty & staff to be better mentors, supervisors, and colleagues to all students and employees—and to racial/SOGIE minorities and women specifically; (4) administer a survey & disseminate a toolkit for interrupting microaggressions; (5) support targets of harassment and bullying; (6) enhance students’ wellbeing, academic success, and sense of belonging; (6) highlight accomplishments and support scholarship of BIPOC faculty and graduate students; and much more.
Thank you for your continued support!
