Historical Note

The UNM Regents' Historic Preservation Committee advises the President regarding historic resources and assists University departments in the preservation and protection of these resources. Departments and/or units shall consult with the Historic Preservation Committee on matters regarding the University’s historic resources. The committee is also responsible for identifying and inventorying the University’s historic resources. Historic resources are historically significant buildings, landscapes, and places or objects that possess exceptional value or quality in representing and reflecting the architecture and cultural heritage of the University. This determination should reflect both public perception and professional judgments. The committee also recommends University historic resources for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places and/or the State Register of Cultural Properties.
