LLC Team

We have a wonderful team of Administrators and Lab Attendants to support language learning at UNM. 

We are fully staffed for the Fall 2023 semester. If you are interested in working at the LLC in the future, see here for the UNMJobs listing. Contact Molly Arevalo, mollyarevalo@unm.edu with any questions. Applicants must be current students with a state or federal work-study award. No previous experience is necessary, but attendants should be friendly, helpful, and responsible.
