Regents' Policy Manual - Section 1.7: Advisors to the Board of Regents

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996
Amended: 08-14-2007
Amended: 08-12-2008


This policy applies to advisors to the Board of Regents.


The Board of Regents is committed to open communication with various constituencies on campus and values their advice on matters of policy and other actions affecting the University. The position of Advisor to the Board of Regents is one method of assuring appropriate and adequate communication. Advisors are not intended to substitute for other forms of communication and access to the Regents, but rather to facilitate and focus the expression of points of view to the Board of Regents.

Advisors to the Board of Regents shall include the following:

  • President of the Faculty Senate
  • President of the Associate Students of the University of New Mexico (ASUNM)
  • President of the Graduate and Professional Students Association (GPSA)
  • President of Staff Council
  • President of the UNM Alumni Association
  • President of the UNM Retiree Association
  • President of the UNM Parent Association
  • Chair of the UNM Foundation

These bodies represent the major campus constituencies.

The advisors shall serve in an advisory, nonvoting capacity for the term of office to which each was elected. No provision will be made for a substitute to serve in the absence of an advisor.
