University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Since our first classes were held on campus in 1957, UNLV has transformed itself from a small branch college into a thriving urban research institution. Along the way, our urban university has become an indispensable resource
in one of the country's fastest-growing and most enterprising cities.

UNLV’s Top Tier Mission

UNLV’s diverse faculty, students, staff, and alumni promote community well-being and individual achievement through education, research, scholarship, creative activities, and clinical services. We stimulate economic development and diversification, foster a climate of innovation, promote health, and enrich the cultural vitality of the communities that we serve.

We will evaluate our success as a leading research university by our progress on these measures:

  • Impact of our research, scholarship, and creative activities.
  • Student achievement of learning outcomes.
  • Student, faculty, and staff diversity, including maintaining UNLV’s Minority Serving Institution (MSI) status and Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) status.
  • Intellectual activity, patents, startups, and entrepreneurial activity fostered by UNLV.
  • Impact of our clinical services.
  • A deeper engagement of UNLV with Las Vegas and our region to ensure ongoing alignment with our diverse community’s needs and interests.
  • Carnegie Classification criteria (research expenditures, doctoral degrees granted per year, number of non-faculty research staff and postdocs).
  • Faculty satisfaction and infrastructure improvements.

As a measure of overall university effectiveness and progress, UNLV will prepare, implement, and disseminate a progress card.
