  • Snyder Welcomes UNLV's Next President

    "I congratulate Dr. Jessup and welcome him as the next UNLV President.  I will work closely with him, as well as the Chancellor and the Board of Regents, on a smooth transition.  My passion for UNLV is as strong as ever and I pledge my on-going support for the university."

    — Donald D. Snyder, President


The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is an internationally recognized research institution that is truly one of America’s great success stories. In 50 years we have grown from 28 students in a single building to a thriving campus of more than 28,000 students, 3,100 faculty and staff, and outstanding educational, research, and recreational facilities.

What I love most about UNLV is that we provide our students with the opportunity to change their lives by connecting them to the careers of their dreams. Our faculty and staff have created a caring environment focused on student success that engages our undergraduate and graduate students with cutting-edge research in more than 100 disciplines.
