The UNM Los Alamos Advisory Board, administration, faculty, staff and students thank you for acknowledging the spirit of cooperation among the institutions of Los Alamos and the valued asset that UNM Los Alamos continues to be in this community. However, we need to correct a false impression you conveyed in your editorial May 15.
Contrary to what you implied, the UNM Los Alamos campus is fiscally autonomous from the Albuquerque campus. UNM operates under the Branch Campus Act and the Operating Agreement which define the fiscal relationship between the Albuquerque campus and this branch campus.
While the fiscal condition of the Albuquerque campus is well known and its revenue substantial, the UNM Los Alamos branch must operate with revenues from five sources:
(1) state legislative appropriations (based on enrollment), which provide the majority of our funding; (2) property taxes paid by residents of Los Alamos county under the local mil levy; (3) tuition and fees paid by the students; (4) contracts and grants; and (5) auxiliary services (student housing and bookstore).
