UNM is Prepared

UNM is Prepared to Educate

Over 700 faculty are working this summer with our award-winning Center for Teaching and Learning to bring the best practices in teaching into their hybrid classes. Dedicated teams are adding new technology to classrooms and helping equip faculty with teaching tools. Staff have developed streamlined, remote student access to services like advising, peer tutoring, mental health support, and UNM events. Above all, we are focused on ensuring the health of our community with rigorous cleaning, social distancing, training, symptom checking, and testing protocols.

UNM is Prepared to Protect Health

As a public institution, UNM must follow State of New Mexico health regulations, which include mandatory masks in public spaces and rigorous social distancing. In the Fall, students can expect to wear masks everywhere on campus (except in their own dorm rooms, or when eating or drinking), complete daily screenings, and follow six-foot social distancing rules, as well as other precautions, explained below.

UNM will have signage, rigorous cleaning, employee health and safety training, remote delivery of support services such as advising, food service following State of New Mexico safety regulations, COVID-19 reporting, symptom screening, and contact tracing. UNM's nationally recognized Student Health and Counseling Services (SHAC) is ready to address all student health needs, including support in accessing testing, support for self-isolation or quarantine, and medical care.

If state health regulations change at any time, we are prepared to respond, including shifting to more remote delivery of courses and services as a protection for Lobo health.
