UNLV will celebrate Take Your Child to Work Day on Thursday, April 27, 2023! The event invites UNLV employees to bring their children to campus to participate in a variety of activities showcasing UNLV’s diverse offerings. For some, this is their first time on a college campus, making it a great opportunity to inspire their future goals. Please see below for details about this year’s event:

  • Programming will take place from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Lunch will be provided at the Student Union Amphitheater from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. 
  • We will offer activities that appeal to children from 3-18 years of age
  • In previous years, the event has brought approximately 200 children to campus

To make this event a success, we need your partnership. You can get involved in a number of ways:

Host an Event 
Groups, departments, and individuals, may organize an interactive event that children and parents can attend. Examples of past events include:

  • Get Your Own Rebel Card
  • Sustainability Tour - Recycling, Composting and Gardening

  • Dancing with Miss Jenny

Sponsor a Table/Activity
Groups, departments, and individuals may host or sponsor a table/activity during lunch at Student Union Amphitheater. You can do this by providing a monetary donation or supplies. Examples of past hosted tables/activities include:

  • Slime making
  • Corn hole
  • Sponsored bouncy houses

Donate Swag
Groups, departments, and individuals may provide departmental swag for inclusion in bags that will be provided to each child. All donations and quantities are welcome. Examples of past swag donations include:
