From University of New Mexico

Each of us defines all of us. We are a community of unique perspectives embracing our differences. We are a culture of contrast, not a contrast of cultures. Unafraid to let our colors run and blend and let the very things that divide us become the things that unite us. So we can create, collect and spread knowledge – about everything from nuclear engineering and fine art to enzymatic fuel cells, revolutionary medicine and forensic accounting. What makes us different makes us strong.
