A Message from the Office of Equal Opportunity

Martin Luther King Jr

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 oeounm@unm.edu 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!
