Message from the UNM-Taos Chancellor:
As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 health crisis, UNM-Taos is committed to helping students successfully complete their semester, while maintaining a safe environment for the entire campus community.
As of Thursday, March 19, 2020, and until further notice, UNM-Taos facilities will be closed. Please note, we are not ceasing instruction, operations, or student services. They will continue remotely, online and via phone, email, and Zoom.
We will continue striving to create a safe and healthy place for our students to learn, innovate, and achieve. UNM-Taos’ virtual classrooms and gathering spaces are platforms where learning continues and students can connect to their instructors, classmates, and curricula — we are committed to developing and refining virtual learning environments and services.
I want to thank you for your ongoing support of our students, staff, faculty and their families, and all the ways the organizations and businesses have united during this crisis. Let’s continue pulling together to pull through.
Patrick L. Valdez, Ph.D.
