The Department of English Language and Literatures at the University of New Mexico houses nearly 50 faculty members and over 100 graduate students, and virtually every undergraduate student receives instruction in one of our courses at some point in their careers. We occupy a central role at UNM because the University understands the importance of a solid foundation in the Humanities and the advantages it provides our students, regardless of background or major.

Departmental Support Statement

The English Department reaffirms a long tradition of civic engagement —including civil disobedience, dissent, resistance—and supports the academic freedom and civil rights of the faculty, instructors, staff, and students who practice forms of social activism.
