Ethnic Minorities and Women at the University of New Mexico.
New Mexico Univ., Albuquerque.
Information on ethnic minorities and women at the University of New Mexico is presented. Specialized programs that emphasize recruitment and retention of minority and women students and the amount of money associated with each program are listed. A breakdown by race, nationality, and sex of the 1977 entering freshman class is presented, and a system of advisement and counseling to increase retention of students is noted. The following issues are discussed: minorities and women and graduate study; aid for graduate students; the relationship of degree production to enrollment; the faculty and staff in general and with respect to representation of women and minorities; and the professional schools and enrollment of minorities and women. It is concluded that the University of New Mexico has the best overall record of any major state or land grant university in the U.S. in terms of minority and women enrollment. (SW)
