About

The Center for Social Justice, a unit of the Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity, 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. Today, the Center serves as a UNLV community resource, a source of educational social justice and diversity programming, and a safe space on campus. 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. We are located in the Houssels House (HOU) on Brussels Road, across from the Paul B. Sogg Architecture Building (ARC). Please feel free to come by and view the facility, ask about resources, meet our staff, and hear about any new programs and events!

The CSJ can provide event and meeting spaces for registered student organizations, academic departments, and relevant community agencies if given advance notice. For more information, please look at our Facilities page.
