Academic Advising

Rebel Voice Commission

The mission of the Rebel Voice Commission is to assess the pulse of academic advising through the perspectives of the students on campus. The commission is responsible for bringing the voice of the students to the forefront of academic advising by providing forums/opportunities for students to share their perspectives and experiences in regards to academic advising. In addition, the commission will acknowledge student beliefs of advisor and student responsibility pertaining to their academic career and use the information gathered to improve academic advising and better serve students at UNLV.

Each year the Rebel Voice Commission selects exceptional students to serve on the Student Academic Advisory Board (SAAB). This board assists academic advisors by researching topics for further exploration, providing scholarly insight, and making recommendations for improving academic advising for all students on the UNLV campus. Meet the 2013-2014 board:

  • Caleb Green – Computer Science
  • Victoria Mitchell - Business
  • Rochelle Cardy - Psychology
  • Antonio Gonzalez-Anaya - Psychology
  • Mariah Campbell – Kinesiology
  • Jorge Almada – Entrepreneurship
  • Daniel Waqar - History
  • Genny Lee - Accounting

Ever wonder if you are the only person changing your major? Or never changing your major? Have you thought about what affects your major selection decision making? In Fall 2012, the Rebel Voice Commission and Student Academic Advisory Board (SAAB) conducted a UNLV Student survey on "Choosing a Major at UNLV"
