Welcome to the UNM Parent Association!

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the University of New Mexico Parent Association. You all are members by having a student enrolled here at UNM. As parents we share tremendous pride, joy and sadness that comes with letting go of our children. The transition for families is just as difficult as it is for students. The UNM Parent Association is committed to assisting you with the process by keeping you informed of what's happening here at the university! To activate your membership, simply send us your contact information including email as we send most communication electronically. Accommodations will be made if you do not have access to email – just let us know.

Our association has conducted a survey to gage the temperature of the members of the UNM Parent Association on the topic of the New Mexico Lottery Scholarship. To view the results of this survey click on this link: Lottery Scholarship

Thank you Jiffy Lube!

The University of New Mexico Parent Association partnered with the Albuquerque Jiffy Lube Corporate Office this past December to provide UNM students with a free safety vehicle inspection for the holidays. If needed repairs arose, Jiffy Lube extended UNM Student a 15 percent discount.

Randy Trevizo, manager at the San Mateo Jiffy Lube said, “We know that some students have to drive a long way to be with family for the holidays and we wanted them to be safe, and that starts with having a reliable vehicle.”

Spread the word and keep our students safe!
