The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

University of New Mexico-Main Campus

Founded in 1889 as New Mexico’s flagship university, The University of New Mexico now occupies nearly 800 acres in the heart of Albuquerque, a metropolitan area of more than 550,000 people, and over 1,200 acres within the state. The University has branch campuses in Gallup, Los Alamos, Taos and Valencia County, an extension of main campus in Rio Rancho, and education centers in Santa Fe, Farmington and at each branch campus. It also offers degree completion programs throughout the state via Extended Learning Distance Education Programs. In the most recent Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, UNM was named the state’s only Research University with “very high research activity,” and the nation’s only “Hispanic serving institution” with that classification. While UNM is one of the first minority-majority universities, it also represents a rich tapestry of cultures and background including Native American, African American, and others. UNM research injects millions of dollars into New Mexico’s economy, funds new advancements in health care, and augments traditional teaching by giving students valuable hands-on training in state-of-the-art laboratories. In Fall 2016, UNM’s Main Campus enrolled 27,060 students. The institution offers 235 active degree and certificate programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional level. In 2015-16, UNM’s Main Campus awarded 5,654 degrees and certificates, including 3,835 bachelor’s degrees.
