A virtual launch for “UNM 2040: Opportunity Defined” is set for Friday, May 7, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. This will be a chance for up to 500 faculty, staff and students to work together in breakout sessions and respond to key questions about future possibilities at The University of New Mexico begins to shape the vision, values and goals of the institution. 

The 1-hour virtual launch of UNM 2040 Vision will provide faculty, staff and students the opportunity to hear from President Garnett S. Stokes and share their views in interactive breakout groups with other Lobos. Faculty, staff and students are invited to play a valued role in helping the administration define its UNM 2040 vision and multi-year roadmap.

This is an early “seat at the table” in this important project, and registration is first-come, first-served. Sign up now to reserve your spot.

As we accelerate our process to develop a vision of UNM in 2040, we are scheduling multiple virtual engagement conversations in May for the Lobo community. I know it’s a very busy time, but I hope you will set aside one hour to join one of these interactive facilitated Zoom sessions. You’ll have an early opportunity before the semester ends to help us begin to shape the vision, values and goals of “UNM 2040: Opportunity Defined.”

From May 6-17, several other virtual interactive sessions will be scheduled for smaller groups of students, and from May 3-24 for faculty and staff. All students who register and attend a Student Focus Group session will be entered into a free raffle to win an iPad – 2 iPads provided by The Napa Group. Your participation and candid opinions and ideas are encouraged and supported. As progress continues, updates and reports will be made available on a dedicated website. UNM’s 2040 Vision will be a very inclusive process, and there will be several other ways to share your views before the final plan is finalized in February 2022.

“This is an exciting time for UNM, as the Lobo community collectively creates a blueprint for our future – and a bright and successful future for UNM is my highest priority,” said Stokes. “Your voice is valued and needed as we define opportunity, together.”
