Resource Management director hired

John Whittaker has been hired as director of Resource Management at UNM. He is slated to begin his duties in January.

Whittaker will be responsible for taking the lead in budget analysis for the academic division, preparing budget guidelines, coordinating capital outlay requests and special legislative projects. He will also act as liaison between academic and financial divisions.

Whittaker comes to UNM from his position as vice chancellor for Administrative Affairs at the University of Hawaii at Hilo where he had extensive financial responsibilities.

“We are happy to find a director with this kind of experience for UNM,” says Provost Brian Foster. “This position requires a person with a strong background and a great ability to work with many different constituencies. We’re pleased to have found him.”

UNM has 11 degree-granting schools and colleges, including the only schools of Medicine, Law, Pharmacy and Architecture and Planning in the state. The University serves a diverse student population of nearly 30,000 students on five campuses.
