Welcome Alumni!


University College is proud to include you in our list of distinct, talented and engaged alumni. Past graduates of the University Studies program, now the LAIS program, have gone on to create unique careers and provide leadership and creative ideas for the organizations and communities in which they work. One in five of our students go on to higher degrees. Today the new cohort of Liberal Arts and Integrative Studies students under the newly-named LAIS program are well on their way to their own impactful, inspiring work.

Here you will see several Alumni Luminaries we thought should be highlighted for their work with UNM and the New Mexico community. You have much to be proud of! If you would like to share your story and why you #loveyourdegree, please be in touch and we would be happy to highlight your work as well.

We need your help to create the BUS/LAIS Alumni Association! Anyone interested in starting or joining the association, please be in touch with us.

If you are interested in making a financial contribution to help another generation love their degree, please donate to the Liberal Arts and Integrative Studies Programs Fund

This fund supports the multidisciplinary mission of the Liberal Arts and Integrative Studies Programs in University College, including support for experiential education, outreach to the community and expansion of services to branch campuses and partners throughout New Mexico.  The UNM Foundation promotes excellence at the University of New Mexico by raising, investing and managing private gifts through the cultivation of long-term partnerships with donors, and by matching their interests to the University’s priorities.
