We are a community of unique perspectives embracing our differences. We are a culture of contrast rather than a contrast of cultures, unafraid to let our colors run and blend and let the very things that divide us become the things THAT connect us to each other. So we can create, collect and spread knowledge—about everything from nuclear engineering and fine art to enzymatic fuel cells, revolutionary medicine and forensic accounting. What makes us different makes us strong—and a force to be reckoned with.

Together We are Lobos
Our teams aren’t just ours, they’re New Mexico’s. When it comes to sports, all eyes are on us. Every game is a big game. Exciting.
And competitive. Because we take our job seriously. We play our hearts out. And give people reasons to howl and lose their voices and their minds, year in and year out.
