UNM is committed to transparency and shared governance, and student participation is critical to our success. The decision to remove University Libraries and Athletics from the Student Fee Review Board process is a part of larger budget process reforms, all of which are designed to allow more time for input, discussion and dialogue.  While we had discussed postponing a decision until the fall semester, that agreement was not finalized and the spirit of those discussions were that we not implement changes over the summer while students were away from campus. 

Students will continue to have a strong voice, through the current Strategic Budget Leadership Team process as well as the newly announced Student Cabinet.
