The University of New Mexico Board of Regents voted unanimously today to re-elect President Robert Doughty and Vice President Marron Lee to those same positions on the UNM Board of Regents.  

Doughty and Lee also serve on other committees as part of their roles on the UNM Board of Regents. Doughty serves on Operations Committee, Health Sciences Center Committee, Sandia Foundation and Honorary Degree Committee, ex officio. Lee also serves on the Operations Committee, Health Sciences Center Committee, and the Finance and Facilities Committee, Lobo Development Corporation and the UNM Foundation.

An alumnus of UNM, Doughty is a practicing attorney bringing decades of service to New Mexico and his community. His law firm, Doughty, Alcaraz, & deGraauw, P.A., focuses primarily on civil claims and litigation in the areas of insurance defense, governmental entity representation, risk management, personal injury, construction defect, and medical malpractice, among others.

Lee is a former Assistant United States Attorney and legislative assistant to Sen. Pete V. Domenici. UNM’s Marron Hall, which now houses the Daily Lobo student newspaper, was named after her great-grandmother Frances Halloran Marron, a 1901 UNM graduate who served as one of the first female regents at the university from 1931 to 1933. Her grandmother, Frances Marron Lee, was also a regent in the 1940s.

Doughty was appointed to the UNM Board of Regents in Dec. 2014, while Lee was appointed in April 2015. Both Doughty’s and Lee’s appointments expire Dec. 2020.
