The purpose of the Adult Learner Advisory Board (ALAB) is to collaborate with entities across campus to foster a supportive environment that empowers our undergraduate and graduate Adult Learners. We are dedicated to providing meaningful connections, guidance, and support to navigate barriers or challenges; and provide valuable services and accessible opportunities that will assist our students in obtaining personal and academic success at UNLV from the point of entry to degree completion.
Our vision is student-centered with the goal of cultivating adult learners' personal and academic experiences. We aim to amplify adult learners' voice and agency, provide engaging resources, connect with student organizations, and create a strong sense of community to improve students' lives and build a better academic experience.
