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.

Our mission is for UNLV’s diverse faculty, students, staff, and alumni to 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. Our vision is that by 2025, UNLV will be recognized as a top-tier public university in research, education, and community impact.
