The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center opened in Fall 2015 as a part of the LoboRESPECT Initiative. The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center provides a safe and welcoming environment and serves as a confidential/anonymous reporting location for students to receive support and advocacy services for a number of areas. The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center is committed to helping students understand and navigate UNM’s structure and assist in resolving issues they may encounter at the university. We provide personal advocacy from start to finish with a single point of entry for students to come for information, assistance and support. We serve the UNM community by providing resources and education in an effort to promote student success.

Our Vision:

The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center will provide a safe and welcoming environment for students to receive support and advocacy services in the aftermath of any form of crisis including, but not limited to, sexual assault/misconduct, hazing and hate/bias related incidents.

Our Mission:

The LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center focuses on promoting student success by providing advocacy, navigation and support to students and the UNM community.

Our Objectives:

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

What We Do:

In addition to our advocacy efforts, the LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center also provides absence notifications, domestic partnership privileges, military and semester withdrawals, student death notices and tuition refund appeals. Finally, the LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center can assist parents, faculty and staff in their efforts to support students here at UNM.

  • We are a confidential/anonymous reporting location
  • We offer education training through workshops and peer educators
  • Our student group provides outreach and awareness

Our services range from providing information and guidance on various petition and appeal processes, university and community resources, and a 24 hour hotline.
