What is LoboRESPECT?

LoboRESPECT logo

LoboRESPECT is the name of UNM’s comprehensive approach to preventing and responding to sexual violence in our campus community. This website includes information on our prevention education efforts and programs, services and support for victims of sexual violence, our policies and sanctions, and much more. All aspects of LoboRESPECT will elevate and strengthen our conversations and efforts to build and sustain a culture of respect in our campus community.

Our purpose:

  • To reduce sexual violence in our campus community
  • To provide effective and comprehensive primary prevention programs
  • To effectively respond to sexual violence that happens in our campus community
  • To support victims of sexual violence so they continue to thrive in our educational environment
  • To create a campus environment that does not tolerate any form of sexual violence

Under Title IX, sexual violence is a severe form of sexual harassment. Sexual violence is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at the University of New Mexico. Sexual violence may be committed by a stranger, an acquaintance or someone with whom the victim is involved in an intimate or sexual relationship. Victims of sexual violence are encouraged to report what happened to law enforcement and seek assistance from any of the resources, on and off campus, listed in this publication.
