Urban Adventure Brings Student Learning to Life

Crime Scene from the Urban Adventures class
May. 21, 2021

“Urban Adventure,” an experiential, scenario-based class in UNLV’s Greenspun College of Urban Affairs, creatively incorporates each of the college’s diverse academic disciplines to give students a unique opportunity to learn about the impact crime can have on a community. Students are thrust into the middle of a simulated crime scene, and throughout the semester they traverse the case and a wide-range of complex related issues as social workers, crime scene investigators, public information officers, policymakers, and journalists.
