During Wednesday evening’s ASUNM Senate meeting, Kyle Stepp approaches the ASUNM board in defense of President Jenna Hagengruber’s decision to hire Kyle Biederwolf as the Emerging Lobo Leaders executive director.

Things to know from Wednesday's ASUNM Senate meeting

ASUNM held their second full Senate meeting of the fall semester on Wednesday evening, and although no major pieces of legislation were presented, several appropriations and president appointments were presented for approval, and the LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center got an opening date, courtesy of Dean of Students Tomás Aguirre.

LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center Opening Set

Aguirre attended the meeting as a guest speaker and announced the ribbon-cutting date of the new LoboRESPECT Advocacy Center, a comprehensive one-stop shop for UNM students who have experienced sexual harassment or any other kind of hazing on campus.

Aguirre said the center will officially open on Sept. 25 at 2 p.m. It will be located in the University Advisement and Enrichment building on the second floor, near the office of the Dean of Students.

He said that once the center will be only the fifth of its kind in the country, and only the second that is “general in the advocacy (it) provides.”

“This will have one number, one space, a hotline available 24/7,” Aguirre said. “These are confidential advocates that will work with students from start to finish.”

He said that the project ultimately cost about $100,000.
