A major goal of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the UNLV Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity is to assist students in developing a sense of civic engagement in their community through the act of service. Service transforms volunteers into active learners, providers, and advocates within the community. Every year, numerous UNLV students and faculty members impact the Las Vegas community through direct service, indirect service, and service learning. The Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity provides multiple opportunities for the UNLV community to engage in service, ranging from on-campus volunteer opportunities to community-based research service learning.
Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity
The Office of Civic Engagement and Diversity strives to enhance students’ educational experience by providing students the opportunity to be civically engaged and to get hands-on experience applying course concepts in real world situations.
We serve as a liaison between faculty members, community organizations, and students to facilitate service learning in the UNLV community.
