The mission of the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is to advance innovation and discovery. The core of this mission is the research, scholarship, and creative works of UNM faculty.

During the Coronavirus Pandemic

As the University of New Mexico continues to work to "Bring back the Pack", resumption of curtailed research operations will occur in alignment with applicable state, national, and regional guidelines and as determined by university leadership. Until all restrictions are lifted, only personnel with a need to access physical locations to advance research and creative works should be on-site. These guidelines are in addition to the protocols published in Bringing Back the Pack (, released by the UNM Office of President (5/22/2020).
