- Year In Review
As the state’s flagship institution of higher learning, UNM serves more than 32,000 students on its five campuses. With nearly 50% of the state's undergraduates and over 80% of its graduate and professional students, UNM produces most of New Mexico’s lawyers, doctors, nurses, teachers, engineers, business executives and other community leaders
In FY2008, UNM received $344.8 million from the New Mexico state legislature for operating expenses. From this public support, UNM generates a total budget of $2.03 billion, making the state contribution 17% of UNM’s total operating budget. The rest of UNM funding is received from sales and services, research grants and contracts, tuition and fees, private donors and other sources. UNM is committed to maintaining low administrative costs and working with all departments to ensure they are run at the most productive and efficient levels.
