UNM is Prepared

UNM is Prepared to Educate

Faculty have worked with our award-winning Center for Teaching and Learning and in several special programs 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. We are focused on ensuring the health of our community with rigorous cleaning, social distancing, training, symptom checking, and testing protocols. We want to encourage you to reach out and ask for support from your academic advisor, from your instructors, from CAPS tutoring and from Student Resource Centers.

UNM is Prepared to Protect Health

As a institution that cares deeply about all the communities of New Mexico, UNM must follow State of New Mexico health regulations, which include mandatory masks in public spaces and rigorous social distancing. In Spring 2021, students can expect to wear masks everywhere on campus (except in their own dorm rooms, or when eating or drinking), complete daily symptom screenings, and follow six-foot social distancing rules, as well as other precautions, explained below.

UNM has 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.
