During summer 2021, the department is moving our administrative offices from Bandelier West to Bandelier East.  As we make this move, there will be times when our office telephones will not be operational.  If you need to contact us, please either email geography@unm.edu, or call Chris Duvall, Department Chair, at 277-0518.  Thanks for your patience!

Meet our Faculty

We support anti-racism movements that seek more equitable societies by challenging anti-Black, anti-Brown, anti-Indigenous, anti-Latinx, and other intolerant attitudes. Structural racism harms society as a whole, and New Mexico must enable truly equal opportunities for all.

We support the statements that have been made across UNM that condemn police brutality, as compiled by the UNM Division for Equity and Inclusion.

We encourage geographic research and learning about racism and police violence, such as MappingPoliceViolence.org and the work of The Washington Post.

We acknowledge the anti-racism statement of the American Association of Geographers (.pdf).
