About

The University of Nevada-Las Vegas Center for Social Justice, housed under Student Engagement and Diversity serves as a resource for students, staff, faculty, and community members to unite around, educate about, and advocate against social injustices that affect our campus, local, national, and global communities. The Center for Social Justice was created in direct response to a student proposal to meet the ever-changing needs of the growing, diverse and vital University of Nevada, Las Vegas student body. The student proposal highlighted the need for a Center that would allow students to speak up, foster change, and create a just community.  It is also home to the Rebel Advocates, a unique student group designed to energize the campus, revitalize activism at UNLV and create a group of diverse educators and student leaders.  The Center for Social Justice promotes the empowerment and collaboration of all individuals through creating an awareness, community space, and providing support in order to take action and transform lives in the realm of diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice.
