Since its first classes were held in 1957, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), has undergone an amazing transformation — from a dusty outpost on the south edge of town to a thriving urban research institution. Along the way, thanks to its innovative frontier spirit, UNLV has kept pace with one of the country's fastest-growing and most enterprising cities.
As a minority-serving institution rich with diversity and committed to equity, UNLV:
