Seven Policies Posted for 30-Day, All-Campus Review

April 3, 2017

Revisions to seven existing policies have been posted for a 30-day, all-campus review and comment period from April 3 to May 3, 2017. The policy drafts previously were provided to representatives of campus constituent groups for review and revised, as appropriate, in response to the constituent groups' comments.

Descriptions of the proposed policy changes are provided below. To comment on the policy drafts, click on the links for the individual policies below or email policy@unm.edu.  We hope to hear from you.

The policy was revised in tandem with proposed revisions to the corresponding Regents’ Policy 2.11. The revisions refine terms, procedures, and criteria; change the status (from voting to advisory) of the UNM Foundation members on the Committee on Naming; and clarify the role of the Board of Regents.

The policy was simplified and revised to describe current practices of the UNM Policy Office.

The policy has been significantly rewritten to reflect current practices and clarify terms, roles, responsibilities, and resources.

The policy has been significantly rewritten to eliminate outdated information; clarify resources and prohibitions; define terms; and authorize, with certain limitations, the carrying of stun guns and pepper spray on campus.

The policy revisions describe the new content-neutral criteria for determining security costs for special events on campus, specify the role of the Special Events Committee, and create an avenue of appeal when an event is canceled.

The policy has been updated to reflect current practices; incorporate small motorized vehicles and explain where and how it is appropriate to use them; specify that Hoverboards are banned; and note that users of motorcycles, mopeds, and motorized scooters may register for parking through UNM Parking and Transportation Services.

The policy, which was last revised in 1991, was updated to reflect current practices, resources, and legal citations.
