New UNM dean of students announced

Following a national search, the University of New Mexico has chosen a new dean of students, which is an administrator who oversees student programs that include the Women’s Resource Center and new student orientation.

Nasha Torrez, who was formerly in the office of university counsel, is set to start as the dean of students on June 1. She will replace the interim dean of students, Jenna Crabb.

The Dean of Students’ office oversees numerous student services such as the Women’s Resource Center or the LoboRespect Advocacy center, a place where students can report sexual assault or harassment. The office also has the power to suspend or expel students for violating university policies. The dean of student’s office also plays a role in other programs such as new student orientation and student exchange programs.

“Her passion and goals for student success will make Torrez an excellent representative of UNM as the Dean of Students,” Torres said. “I would like to thank Dr. Jenna Crabb who has served as the interim Dean of Students for the past five months for her tireless efforts and commitment to the position.”

It wasn’t immediately clear how much Torrez would be making as the dean of students. According to UNM’s pay structure, the starting salary for Torrez’s position is $80,000 and the midpoint would be $122,000.
