    Upcoming Open Enrollment is a Little Different This Year

    Now is the time to start thinking about Open Enrollment for UNM’s medical, dental, vision, life, long-term disability, and accidental death and dismemberment (AD&D) insurance plans. UNM will hold a “Positive Enrollment” this year. This means all current medical coverage will end on June 30, 2014, and everyone who is currently enrolled in one of UNM’s medical plans will be required to re-enroll with one of three vendors below if you want continued medical coverage effective July 1, 2014.

  • Join the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor2.0 Program

    A UNM Volunteer Initiative

    In 2013, Big Brothers Big Sisters launched a new mentoring program that President Frank identified as a great fit for faculty and exempt staff at UNM.  The program is called mentor2.0 and focuses on high school students.

    The mentor2.0 program is working to place mentors with 9th grade students at South Valley Academy located on Coors and Blake SW and Amy Biehl High School in downtown Albuquerque.  The goal is to match every incoming freshman in these two schools with a mentor, in order to increase graduation rates.

    We understand that you may be hesitant to volunteer for a program that you don’t know that much about.  Here is a video describing a similar program in New York City called iMentor.  This is the program upon which Big Brothers Big Sisters is building their mentor2.0 program.

    When running an errand on campus, travel time can take longer than the actual errand. If you drive, you have to find parking, and if you walk it might be a 30-minute round trip.  Leslie Trickey, a 23-year employee of the University of New Mexico, and the rest of the Pediatrics Prevention and Population Sciences department found an easier way to get around campus - biking. They are able to save time and boost physical activity by taking advantage of Parking and Transportation’s Lobo Bike program, available to all departments at UNM.
