No means no. If sex is unwanted it is assault. Help make a safer campus.
A Message from the Office of Equal Opportunity
The Office of Equal Opportunity is concerned about recent reports of hate-bias incidents against members of the UNM community. It is a violation of university policy to discriminate against or target individuals based on a protected status such as race, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, sex, age, veteran’s status, gender identity, and religion. If you have civil rights concerns on campus, please contact the OEO at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 277-5251. OEO can provide investigative services, training and also connect you to other campus resources.
Remember – UNM values the diversity of our community. Protect the Pack!

The revised documents are intended to streamline and refine the manner in which the department investigates claims that are raised in order to better align the University's procedure with the recommendations from the Department of Justice.
