UNLV Creates is the new academic component of UNLV Welcome Day. The program sponsored by Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, will include faculty and staff who will highlight creativity, inspiration, and discovery in such a way that new students will be energized about the transformative opportunities made possible by a college degree. This event will include an academic convocation where the university community will welcome the incoming fall class of 2013. Within the ceremony, students will be asked to make a pledge to graduate from UNLV. This new tradition will signify the beginning of their college career.
