In Brief

UNM debuts homepage

The new UNM homepage made its debut last week and is designed to be clean and easy to navigate. The homepage now gives special attention to major constituencies and to the most popular links and activities.

The “Looking for...” has many of the links previously listed on the current page.

The page continues to provide hot-button links to the latest news and events. More detailed campus news will still be available on “Inside UNM.” Check it out at www.unm.edu.

Comments on dispute policy due May 31

Vice President of Business and Finance Julie Weaks and the UNM Executive Cabinet have extended the comment period on proposed changes to Policy 3220 “Dispute Resolution” to May 31.

The extension will allow staff and faculty additional time to review the policy. The proposed changes are available to faculty, staff and students accessing the UNM web page through UNM computers. The URL is http://www.unm.edu/~ubppm.

Comments can be sent to Weaks’ office in Scholes Hall or via e-mail to ubppm@unm.edu.
