Staff and Students lack "standing" at UNM.

During the "debate" over whether UNM Regent Jamie Koch would be re-crowned, a Senator reminded staff and students that they don't run the UNM.

I wasn't attending closely enough to see who said it. Were there a searchable archive of quality recordings of Senate Committee Meetings and Floor Sessions, I could enable you to watch and listen to him.

(Update; I have it on good authority,
it was Senator Tim Jennings
who schooled students and staff on
their standing in the process.)

He reminded students and staff, they can hold all of the silly little elections and confidence votes they want, and it won't make any difference.

To underscore the point, he and the rest of the Senate went ahead and extended Koch's reign for six years, nearly unanimously.

That whole sentiment runs through UNM. Staff and students don't matter, unless there's a problem with paying tuition..then all attention is put on them... immediately.
Otherwise, UNM admin doesn't care what staff, students or department heads think.
