Graduate Studies is saddened, dismayed, and troubled by the act of violence that took the life of Muhammad Afzaal Hussian. He was a brilliant, respected student leader who headed GPSA during the height of the pandemic, and after graduating from UNM, he continued to extend his compassionate leadership skills and educational expertise at the local and state levels.

We offer condolences to Mr. Hussain’s family members, friends, and the communities here and abroad that will feel his loss for years to come. We also call on the University of New Mexico, the City of Albuquerque, and the greater community to engage in concerted efforts to make living, working, and studying in this beautiful place safe for us all.

As a reminder, the following resources are available for well-being and support:
