Rebel Voice Commission


The mission of the Rebel Voice Commission is to assess the pulse of academic advising through the perspectives of the students on campus. The commission is responsible for bringing the voice of the students to the forefront of academic advising by providing forums/opportunities for students to share their perspectives and experiences in regards to academic advising. In addition, the commission will acknowledge student beliefs of advisor and student responsibility pertaining to their academic career and use the information gathered to improve academic advising and better serve students at UNLV.

Student Academic Advisory Board (SAAB)

Each year the Rebel Voice Commission selects exceptional students to serve on the Student Academic Advisory Board (SAAB). This board assists academic advisors by overseeing the Rebel Success Initiative. Within this group, students research topics for further exploration, provide scholarly insight, get involved in community outreach, assist with academic events and make recommendations for improving academic advising for all students on the UNLV campus.
