Virtually every department, unit, and group on the UNLV campus is involved in community engagement in some way. Whether it’s a student organization that volunteers, research that helps solve a community problem, or a class that offers personal enrichment, opportunities abound for our campus to connect with the community.

Members of the campus and the external communities are forming wonderful partnerships for the greater good. Find out about the many ways to connect and collaborate.
