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

April 1, 2019

One new policy for the University Administrative Policies (UAP) manual and proposed revisions to three existing UAP policies have been posted for a 30-day, all-campus review and comment period from April 1 through May 1, 2019. Versions of these drafts were provided previously to representatives of campus constituent groups for review and then revised, as appropriate, in response to their 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  We hope to hear from you.

New Policy

UAP 6030 (“Oversight of University-Affiliated Organizations”)

  • This new policy was developed to expand on Regents’ Policy 7.17 (“University-Affiliated Organizations”), and seeks to provide oversight for the efforts and activities of University-affiliated organizations, while preserving their separateness. The policy requires a Senior University Oversight Official, an annual report, and a Master Services Agreement for each organization. It was developed by the Chancellor for Health Sciences, Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration, HSC Senior Executive Officer for Finance and Administration, University Controller, and Office of University Counsel.

Revisions to Existing Policies

UAP 1000 (“UNM History, Mission, and Organization”)

  • This policy was updated to reflect the mission that was approved by the Board of Regents in 2001 and that appears in the Faculty Handbook and UNM’s reaffirmation of accreditation assurance argument. It also includes some minor revisions to reflect UNM’s current structure.

UAP 2310 (“Reasonable Accommodation for Students with Disabilities”) – revised title

  • This policy has not been revised since 2004, and was updated in collaboration with the Policy Office, Accessibility Resource Center, Office of Equal Opportunity, Facility Access Committee, and student group Society for Adaptable Education and Accessibility. The revisions update definitions and references; the responsibilities of students, faculty, ARC, and the University; and the process for requesting and providing reasonable accommodations for qualified students with a disability. Also included are some minor revisions to Exhibit A “Appeal Rights Procedures” with title changes.

UAP 2710 (“Education Abroad Health and Safety”)

  • The revisions update definitions and travel advisory terminology, clarify the role of the Health and Safety Advisory Committee, and update travel procedures and Clery Act reporting information. The policy was revised by the Health and Safety Advisory Committee, Provost’s Office, Clery Act Compliance Officer, and Policy Office.
