Individuals found to discriminate or harass are disciplined according to UNM’s policy. OEO’s role is to review and make findings regarding alleged civil rights violations; and then administrators and supervisors must determine what discipline and remediation measures are fair and effective. Discipline may involve suspending or firing an offender, but does not require it. The goal is to prevent future misconduct.

UNM’s administration is working actively to address OEO’s findings regarding the Anthropology Department. Every effort has been and will be taken to protect the rights of all students and faculty. The findings are troubling, and the recommended discipline is designed to re-establish a good learning environment that ensures the safety and well-being of everyone who is affected. We will closely monitor the situation and take whatever steps are needed to maintain the proper conditions.
