Safety Topic of the Month
Diversity on Campus

“Each of us defines all of us.”

We come together at UNM to work, grow, support, and gain skills and knowledge. We come from many places, with different cultures, backgrounds, interests, abilities and beliefs. Through celebrating our unique qualities we inspire creativity, expression, connection, and pride, in ways that will shape our future.

Being in a diverse community has its issues. We bring students, staff, and faculty together from all over the nation, as well as internationally. Differences need to be respected, yet we find these are sometimes a cause of conflict. This month we will be discussing our UNM community, celebrating our unique groups and members, while sharing our concerns of unfair treatment, bias, and hate crimes.

What is a hate crime?

A hate crime is committed on the basis of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, or gender of any person.

For additional information and how to report a hate/bias crime:  https://police.unm.edu/default.aspx?MenuItemID=249&MenuGroup=Public+Home

What is implicit bias?

“Implicit bias” describes when we have attitudes towards people or associate stereotypes with them without our conscious knowledge.

Individuals can identify risk areas where our implicit biases may affect our behaviors and judgments. Instituting specific procedures of decision making and encouraging people to be mindful of the risks of implicit bias can help us avoid acting according to biases that are contrary to our conscious values and beliefs.                             

UNM offers a wide variety of courses on diversity through UNM Division of Equity and Inclusion:  http://diverse.unm.edu/common/documents/18-19-approved-courses.pdf
