Employee Benefits and Programs


  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance for Eastern New Mexico University is offered through the New Mexico Public Schools Insurance Authority. High coverage and low coverage options are offered for medical and dental insurance so employees can choose the plan that's right for them.

Employee Educational Assistance Plan

Eastern New Mexico University offers a tuition waiver for regular employees and retirees. This program waives the tuition for up to nine credit hours per semester. Employee's spouses and dependent children may be eligible to use the tuition waiver during any semester that it is not being used by the employee.

Employees, spouses, and dependants using a tuition waiver need to apply for admission to the University though the Office of Enrollment Services and register for classes through the Office of the Registrar.

Spirit of Eastern

As a part of the process of attracting and maintaining capable personnel for ENMU, the Board of Regents authorizes the president of the University to implement an employee compensation bonus program known as the "President's Spirit of Eastern Awards." The program's purpose is for the public benefit, to improve mission focus and to provide an incentive for quality performance.
