The UNM Alumni Association and School of Engineering proudly invite all Lobos to Homecoming week’s edition of Lobo Living Room today at 6:30 p.m.


UNM Professor Mark Stone will lead the discussion, Lobo Living Room: The world is on fire! Can the American West adapt to a changing climate?, in the Larrañaga Engineering Auditorium located in the Centennial Engineering Center. There will be a reception from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.

As the world faces an unprecedented confluence of wildfires, devastating floods, polar vortices, a global pandemic and social and political unrest, personal and community resilience is being put to the test. Stone, professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, will share his perspectives on how the concepts of resilience and guided transformation can be used to reimagine and recreate a thriving future for this region that weaves energy transitions, sustainable water resources, food security, biodiversity, and equity through innovation, action and policy.

This Lobo Living Room is presented by the UNM School of Engineering in partnership with the UNM Alumni Association. Attendees must RSVP; this event will also be offered via zoom, capacity is limited to 200 people in-person.

All attendees must wear a mask indoors.
