Special Campus Safety Message from Dr. Eliseo "Cheo" Torres

January 19, 2017 - Dorene DiNaro

The safety of our students and campus community is always a top concern for our Division and our University.  As a public institution, we honor free speech and support sharing viewpoints. 

We must learn how to listen to each other and be heard by engaging in civil dialogue about complex issues.

As you are probably aware, several events are scheduled on campus in the coming weeks.  Every Lobo plays a critical role in protecting our pack.  If you see something, report it.  Use campus safety resources listed at campussafety.unm.edu.

The Dean of Students office is hosting a free Student Free Speech: Know your Rights and Responsibilities panel discussion on January 25 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the SUB Atrium.  I encourage you to attend and learn from attorneys specializing in free speech and media law; and from our director of Student Activities about free speech events and what UNM policies apply.

Most importantly remember we are all Lobos first and foremost and need to look out for each other.
