Dr. Wynn Goering“Dream no small dreams,” wrote the German poet Goethe, “for they have no power to move the hearts of men.” 

The University of New Mexico is the sum of many big dreams, from the ones of the first 75 students who took classes in Hodgin Hall over a century ago, to those of the 36,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students now enrolled at our Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and branch campuses.  We invite you to be a part of those dreams as well.

 UNM West strives to give its students the opportunities of a great flagship institution, in an environment that supports their individual aspirations.  Together with faculty, they are encouraged to explore their passions and hone their interests through one of the university’s distinctive and distinguished degree programs. 

 Never has the world been more in need of the power of the large ideas, innovative discoveries and global understanding afforded by a university education.  Meeting those needs is the challenge presented to all of us at the University of New Mexico.  Welcome!  We look forward to working – and dreaming – together with you. 

 Go Lobos!
