Regents' Policy Manual - Section 2.4: Diversity and Campus Climate

Adopted Date: 09-12-1996


This policy applies to all members of the University community.


The University values the diversity of its students, faculty, staff and the other people with whom it interacts. The University is a forum for the expression, consideration and evaluation of ideas. The educational process on campus is clearly enriched and strengthened by the fact that these ideas arise and are evaluated from such different perspectives.

The University is committed to increasing participation in the University by populations historically underrepresented at UNM (Hispanics, Native Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, students from rural areas and first-generation college students); recruiting and supporting a diverse faculty and staff; and fostering diverse intellectual approaches to teaching, research and creative activity.

The University is further committed to creating and maintaining a diverse community and a campus in which students, faculty and staff can learn and work together in an atmosphere that is productive and free from harassment, exploitation, intimidation, hate crimes, discrimination and retaliation. The University will act decisively and promptly to deal with those who engage in criminal acts and who violate applicable administrative policies and procedures, thereby demonstrating in the strongest terms that such actions will not be tolerated on this campus.


The President shall develop any administrative policies and procedures necessary to implement this policy.
