Student Death Notices

A student death is a heartfelt event - for family and friends of the deceased and for members of the University community. In dealing with a student's death, the University faces the challenges of coping with the loss, making the best possible sense of the event, contacting and attending to the family, and more.

The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center serves as the primary institutional contact office for the Central Campus in instances of student death.

The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center will contact and serve as the University liaison to the family.

In addition, the LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center will notify the student's faculty members and the appropriate University offices to process and close the student's University records.

Please contact us at 505-277-2911 if you know that a student has passed away.

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. 

Please contact UNM's Title IX Coordinator, Heather Cowan, at hbcowan@unm.edu for more information about Title IX.
