Tuesday, Jul 12: UNM Seal Forum

Over the past few months, students, faculty and staff members at the University of New Mexico have raised concerns about the school's seal, arguing that it is a symbol of racism. The seal depicts a conquistador and a frontiersman, and some believe that these two figures glorify violent colonialism and white supremacy. Do you have a say in the matter? If so, speak up! The Office of Academic Affairs will host a series of public forums regarding the UNM seal where alumni, community members, staff and students are encouraged to share their opinions. The first of these meetings will be held on Tuesday, July 12, at noon in the UNM SUB Ballroom A. UNM SUB Ballrooms • Tue Jul 12 • Noon-1:30pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
