The news of UNM-CIA "Signature School" partnership has been perceived by the public as a something that the school and students support. However, the reality is that this decision and its process have not been transparent to the students and other campus constituents, which is why we would like to clarify out stance on this matter. As students of Latin America we are well aware of the negative impacts the CIA has imposed in Latin America throughout history. While we do not oppose the CIA or other government agency recruitment on campus, we do oppose both, the UNM - CIA partnership and the branding of UNM as a "Signature School." Attached is the document we sent to the office of the Provost, which clearly states our concerns and our opposition.
