**The all-campus review and comment period closes on May 7th, 2023.**  

Track-changes and clean-copy versions have been provided for ease in reading the proposed language, and can be found at the links below. 

Revisions to Existing Policy  

UAP 3700 (“Educational Benefits”)   

This policy contains revisions to align eligibility between Employee Tuition Remission and Dependent Education, thus eliminating the requirement of 1-year of employment for Dependent Education eligibility.  Recommended eligibility now includes post-doc fellows who have a minimum 3-month contract and have a full-time equivalency of 0.50 FTE or greater.  Ineligibility based on employees and dependents of eligible employees having a hold on their Bursar’s account, have been removed. Throughout the policy, language has been added to indicate that “The University charges employees a tuition rate equivalent to in-state tuition.” And throughout the policy, language has been removed that limits non-credit professional development to courses that are job related, or related to a UNM job that the employee may reasonably aspire. 

New Proposed Policy

UAP 6140 (“Video Security Systems”) 

As part of its commitment to provide a safe and secure environment on campus, The University of New Mexico may install video security systems (“Video Security Systems”) in public areas to enhance the safety and security of the University community, while preserving reasonable privacy expectations, academic freedoms, and civil liberties of the campus community.  This policy regulates the installation and use of video security systems for law enforcement, safety, and security purposes on campus, which for the purpose of this policy, includes any property owned/leased by and/or controlled by the University.  Only authorized video security systems may be installed on campus. The draft policy establishes video security system allowability, access, and procedures for the request of video records.
