As part of UNM’s annual respectful campus policy notification, the University community is encouraged to review these policies. Mutual respect is crucial to the success of our flagship mission, and our policies serve as a reminder of the critical expectation that we all work together to create a respectful working and learning environment. Everyone at UNM has a right to be treated with respect, and a responsibility to treat others respectfully.
“Each of us is a valued member of the Lobo community,” said James Holloway, executive vice president and provost. “In order for UNM to be successful, we must respect ourselves, and we must respect all of those around us. Only in a respectful environment can knowledge grow, and our community members develop to ensure success for themselves and for our state.”
While the stress, challenges, and demands of jobs and personal lives are recognized, it is never appropriate to treat any member of the UNM community in a disrespectful manner, and University leadership has made it clear that actions that are destructive to a respectful campus should not be, and will not be ignored. “We have made great strides in the past year towards creating a positive, respectful learning and working environment for all of our faculty, staff and learners”, said Dr. Paul Roth, executive vice president for Health Sciences and chancellorr. “This policy notification recommits as an institution to redouble our efforts across the university.”
“This annual policy notification serves as a reminder to administrators, faculty, staff, students, residents, and volunteers about the expectation that we all work together to create a respectful working and learning environment,” said Dorothy Anderson, vice president for human resources. “Any members of the UNM community who have witnessed or been a target of destructive actions are encouraged to raise concerns in accordance with these policies.”
Employees are encouraged to speak with their supervisor or unit head and/or contact one of the resources listed below and in the policy notification. Students should raise any concerns and contact the resource entities. Thank you for helping to foster an inclusive and respectful working and learning environment.
