About Us

Welcome to the UNM Alumni Association!

From the beautifully restored Alumni Center at Hodgin Hall, the Alumni Association and Alumni Relations Office keep the University of New Mexico and its alumni communicating and connected. Everyone who graduates from UNM is automatically a member of the Alumni Association—there are no dues.

About Us

We Work for You! The UNM Alumni Association is governed by a national board of 37 members and four ex-officio members. The board is charged with guiding the Association to be a vital partner in the continued excellence of the University of New Mexico through the significant engagement of alumni. The entire board meets three times a year; the executive committee meets monthly.
