The University of New Mexico is working to create a safe environment for all members of the UNM community. As part of this ongoing initiative, UNM now mandates that all students receive in-person, interactive training called “The Grey Area.”
This training will provide students with the tools and knowhow to engage in consensual and healthy relationships. It will also provide information regarding how to report potential sexual misconduct during their college experience and resources available to those experiencing such misconduct.
On October 17, 2016, the University of New Mexico entered into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice to refine UNM’s policies regarding sexual harassment on campus, which includes sexual misconduct such as assault.
As a part of the agreement, UNM is providing MANDATORY sexual misconduct prevention training to all UNM Students.
What Is "The Grey Area"?
The training module, entitled, “THE GREY AREA,” is an in-person and interactive training that is approximately 1.5 hrs in length. It is required of all UNM students, including all branch campus, HSC, and Law students currently enrolled at UNM.
Students must complete the in-person training in order to maintain enrollment eligibility for future semesters. Beginning Spring 2018, continuing students will be required to compete online training annually while new students will still be required to complete the in-person sessions.
