Chancellor Weekly Brief
April 3, 2020
Going Strong, United.
These are truly remarkable times, but UNM-Gallup remains open and united in community. As we work toward our deadline for 100-percent remote instruction by this Monday, April 6, I want to thank you for your continued dedication, patience, and perseverance as we have each worked diligently these past few weeks to achieve that goal.
Though we will interact remotely through the end of this semester, I know that we are together in our hope to return to normal in the coming months. We are so grateful to all of the medical personnel and officials working in our communities to overcome this pandemic. For now, our priority is to stay home, stay well, and care for the needs of our families—and to finish this semester strong with flexibility and patience for each other.
The following is a recap of the information we have shared this past week. Please carefully review this material and join me at the end of each weekday at 4 p.m. on Zoom for the Chancellor’s Open Office Hour. The Zoom Meeting Link is: https://unm.zoom.us/j/845168768.
Campus Limited Operations - Extended
UNM-Gallup has extended our period of limited operations until further notice. We must follow the governor’s public health orders requiring that identified non-essential businesses and employees work remotely. Until those health orders are relaxed—or we receive further social distancing guidelines from the state—we will continue to operate under limited operations:
All UNM-G physical facilities will be accessible by authorized Tier 1 personnel only until further notice.
- This excludes: 1) The general public; 2) Admitted and registered students; and 3) Tier 2 and Tier 3 employees.
- Courses in progress will be conducted via remote instruction through the end of this semester.
- Mail continues to be sorted every Wednesday. Please contact Linda at email@example.com to schedule UNM official business only mail and financial aid checks.
Registration & Summer Term
All UNM campuses are moving forward with plans for both summer and fall 2020 course registration; though only remote courses will be offered for summer courses. It’s important for our students to check our Website (gallup.unm.edu) and with advisors for the latest information.
Registration begins on Monday, April 13. Please be sure to use our advisement resources, including our Web chat feature on this page: https://gallup.unm.edu/advising/. Students are encouraged to schedule their advisement appointment now—advisors are currently scheduling student appointments, so please check LoboAchieve for availability.

Again, these are remarkable and unprecedented times, but we will focus on finishing this semester strong. Even though we are social distancing, be sure to get some fresh air during these spring days and remain committed to your personal well-being, fitness, health, and education. I wish you and your family all the best.
Please be well and have a nice weekend.
