Accelerated Schools PLUS
The College of Education’s Accelerated Schools PLUS Project is a school reform project designed to work with schools with high percentages of students in poverty and other at-risk situations that might impede student ability to succeed academically. The Accelerated Schools PLUS Project at UNLV works with several schools in Clark County and has a special program on a Navajo Reservation in Piñon, Ariz.
The program rewards youth for excelling academically and provides the UNLV community an opportunity to mentor and engage at-risk elementary students in the Clark County School District.

Alternative Break Trips
Alternative Break Trips provide students with the opportunity to engage in service and learning, and to interact with diverse cultures in the United States during university breaks and weekends.
The College of Fine Arts participates in Artsbridge – a national program that partners fine arts students with at-risk elementary school students to teach biology, math, and a variety of other topics using the arts. The program is underwritten locally.
