The University of New Mexico utilizes an online complaint management system known as EthicsPoint. The system is used across various departments at the University for a multitude of concerns related to: human resources; academic affairs; internal audit; UNM Hospital compliance; and civil rights discrimination and sexual harassment. The Office of Equal Opportunity investigates all civil rights and sexual misconduct issues that are reported through the hotline. The hotline can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.

UNM Discrimination Claims Procedure

In response to the recent release from the Department of Justice in relation to the University of New Mexico's response to allegations of sexual misconduct on campus, the Office of Equal Opportunity has revised the previous Discrimination Claims Procedure documents.  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.  To view the new documents, please click below:
