The award was given for a project titled “Scaling of Biodiversity: Physical and Biological Foundations of Ecological Principles,” with UNM biology professor Bruce Milne and Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist Geoffrey West as co-private investigators.


Fred Perez, director of Recreational Services, is among the select "2000 Class of Ambassadors" recently honored by the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Established in 1995, the awards recognize contributions of community members who play a key role in attracting meetings and conventions to the city.

Perez twice attracted the meeting of the National Intramural Recreational Sports Association to Albuquerque, in 1995 and 2004.


Harold Pope, associate director of Recruitment Services, has been appointed to the City of Albuquerque Human Rights Board. His term began in March and runs through December, 2003.


Steve Walsh, professor at the Anderson Schools of Management, has been elected President of the Micro and Nano Technology Commercialization Education Foundation (MANCEF).

MANCEF was formed in December 2000 to promote the exchange of knowledge and disseminate information that can accelerate the emergence of an effective economic base for the future development of micro- and nano-technology based industries.
