Director's Message

Scott Carreathers

Dear Student,

I trust this letter finds you in great spirits and enjoying life’s many blessings.

For our prospective and new students, welcome to the University of New Mexico. The African American Student Services is a positive, dynamic and supportive environment for studying and fellowship. Several out-of-state students perceive African American Student Services staff and students as an extension of family. I am eager to share with you the opportunities and resources that the African American Student Services provides.

For our current students, the focus of the African American Student Services continues to be retention and to ensure that you have had a wonderful college experience here at the University of New Mexico. We understand the many challenges you face at this university, so we want to continue to provide the educational resources you will need to prepare you personally, professionally, financially and even spiritually.

I strongly encourage every student to actively participate in the activities provided by the African American Student Services.

It has been an honor for me to serve you and I thank you for allowing me to have this great opportunity.


W. Scott Carreathers M. Ed
African American Student Services Director
