Interim President Abdallah Approves Revisions to Two Policies and One Rescission

February 27, 2018

On February 26, 2018, Interim President Abdallah approved revisions to two existing policies and the rescission of one policy in the University Administrative Policy (UAP) Manual. The policies were posted for a 30-day, all-campus review and comment period on the Policy Office website from November 1 to December 1, 2017, and also were sent to the Department of Justice for review, and then later re-review, as part of the DOJ's agreement with UNM.

Below are brief descriptions of the revisions and links to the revised policies.

UAP 2720 ("Prohibited Discrimination and Equal Opportunity") - a new title

This policy was revised to expand, refine, and clarify the types of prohibited discrimination. It includes new sections on definitions, gender identity and preferred first names, hate/bias crimes and incidents, reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, and religious observation.

UAP 2740 ("Sexual Misconduct") - a new title 

This policy was revised to incorporate elements of UAP 2730 ("Sexual Harassment"), with the intention of rescinding UAP 2730. The current changes to UAP 2740 are relatively minor; more significant changes to the policy are planned for the near future.
