EACH OF US DEFINES ALL OF US.

HERE AT UNM-GALLUP, WE ARE A COMMUNITY OF UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES RESPECTING AND EMBRACING OUR DIFFERENCES. WE ARE A CULTURE OF CONTRAST RATHER THAN A CONTRAST OF CULTURE, UNAFRAID TO LET OUR COLORS RUN AND BLEND. WE LET THE VERY THINGS THAT DIVIDE US BECOME THE THINGS THAT CONNECT US TO EACH OTHER, SO THAT WE CAN CREATE, COLLECT, AND BE INSPIRED BY KNOWLEDGE—ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM NURSING AND CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY TO FINE ARTS, LIBERAL ARTS, AND BUSINESS.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT MAKES US STRONG—AND A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.


UNM-GALLUP IS DEEPLY & UNIQUELY ROOTED IN NEW MEXICO.

Look around. Our campus looks like New Mexico. It blends with the environment and feels like our state. There is no mistaking where you are when you are here. The art we create and display. The architecture—the buildings where we learn and work. As a branch campus of New Mexico’s flagship university, we live, breathe, and embrace who we are and where we are. This oasis of knowledge is a community within a community, where you can grow and experience life and learning. Peaceful places to search for answers, think big thoughts, create new thinking, and make the unbelievable and unthinkable doable every day.

We are your home away from home that’s still close to home.


AT UNM-GALLUP, WE ARE
UNALIKE MINDED

UNM-Gallup Student

Here are UNM-Gallup, we are all different together. It is our differences that make us stronger and allow for strong collaborations across all academic disciplines. We think that is a great reason for you to come here—to be among those who are like you, but mostly unlike you in a place where we feel it is our honor to support you academically, socially, and culturally in every way.

This is your opportunity to embrace and display your own culture while experiencing and sharing points of view you can’t even imagine yet.

Being unalike together—it’s what makes us special.


ON A PLATEAU BELOW A GREAT SKY NEXT TO SHIMMERING RED ROCKS.

Plateau

Live and learn in a historic city on an expansive mesa over a mile above sea level. Experience a campus that’s simultaneously traditional yet modern, small-town yet diverse and brimming with light and possibilities. This is UNM-Gallup. A friendly place in a city just around the corner from ordinary bisected by historic Route 66 and surrounded by thousands of years of history and culture. Within 30 minutes in any direction, you will find beautiful red rocks that change colors with the movement of the sun, forests of pines and aspens, and a landscape that serves as awe-inspiring examples of the kind of wild, natural beauty that wraps around everything here and rushes off in every direction.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

“My name is Kadeem Ladoo, and I’m an international student from the twin island state of Antigua and Barbuda currently completing my sophomore year at UNM-Gallup. I’m pursuing my Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration and will transfer to the UNM main campus, where I’ll pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Management Information Systems and Operations Management. I’m also a semi-finalist for the prestigious Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s undergraduate transfer scholarship. Attending UNM-Gallup has provided me with many great opportunities and memories over the past two years.”

STUDENT SUCCESS ISN’T SOMETHING WE TAKE LIGHTLY.

YOUR SUCCESS IS OUR SUCCESS

Some reasons our Lobos do so well:

18:1 student to faculty ratio. Our faculty know their students and students have a chance to know their instructors and classmates.

Most classes are capped at 25 students. Small classes allow for personalized attention and more interactive learning.

Inspire your athletic side with vibrant recreation services and intramural sports. Our Physical Education Complex houses a regulation basketball court, cardio and weight rooms, and full-sized locker rooms. The fitness trail surrounding the complex provides a great place to hike and run while taking in the local scenery.

With beautiful views of the surrounding red rocks, the Zollinger Library offers a wide variety of resouces and literary materials, a computer lab, and individual and group study areas.

Visit our university bookstore for textbook needs, school supplies, snacks, and the latest Lobo gear.

BOBBI JO PADILLA

BIOCHEMISTRY

“My name is Bobbi Padilla, and I’m a Gallupian—having lived here since I was five years old. Attending UNM-Gallup has given me so many opportunities! Just this past year, I had the honor of being selected to participate in two scientific research programs for UNM-Gallup students. I am of Mexican and Zuni heritage, so I never thought that I would be able to conduct and present my own research as an undergraduate from such underrepresented groups, but I actually got to present in San Francisco and Albuquerque. These opportunities are made possible by the UNM-Gallup faculty, who are so caring and dedicated. They really make the UNM-Gallup experience one to remember!”
