Here at UNLV, we have come together and created one of the most affirmative and dynamic academic environments in the country.

The university is tied for second in the publication’s annual Best Ethnic Diversity listing, a jump from sixth last year. UNLV has placed in the top 10 for the past five years and continues to show our commitment to serving our wonderfully diverse population and building the future for Las Vegas and Nevada.
