Research Guidelines

Resumption of curtailed research operations will occur in alignment with applicable state, national, and regional guidelines and as determined by university leadership. Until all restrictions are lifted, only personnel with a need to access physical locations to advance research and creative works should be on-site. These guidelines are in addition to the protocols published in Bringing Back the Pack (, released by the UNM Office of President (5/22/2020).

Vulnerable individuals (as defined by the CDC) should consider carefully their own health concerns, and consult with their supervisor/chair to address these concerns. For confidential issues related to underlying health issues or ADA concerns, individuals may consult with OEO.  Students are able to opt-out of on-campus research activities if they feel unsafe and should speak with their advisor’s/PI’s supervisor, and/or use an anonymous tip-line (e.g., EthicsPoint) if they feel pressured to return.
