    Dear Colleagues, Along with other agencies and businesses across the state, we continue to monitor COVID-19 trends to guide when we resume on-site operations. On June 1, UNLV initiated Step One of its plan to reopen the campus, which marked the return of senior leadership and essential employees, including additional members of our Facilities Management team, to lay the groundwork for...

    Campus community, COVID-19 testing has become increasingly available throughout Southern Nevada, including on UNLV’s Maryland Parkway and the Shadow Lane campuses. As businesses and facilities reopen in our community, access to testing is a critical part of our continued recovery, and for state and local officials considering strategies for additional resumption of services. Testing at both...

    Dear colleagues,  Today we begin the gradual and methodical transition to start resuming on-campus operations in steps. In this first step, we welcome a small group of UNLV employees over the next couple of weeks who will be resuming work from their offices after months of working remotely. In doing so, UNLV joins Clark County and many other local government jurisdictions – as well as...

    Dear students, We are looking forward to welcoming you in the fall semester for what we hope and plan to be a more normal semester than the one you just valiantly completed. We are indeed planning for in-person instruction but, to keep everyone safe, there will be many more remote course offerings so that we can reduce population density and minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission on our...
  • May. 19, 2020
    Dear colleagues,  Earlier this month I introduced a plan to have our workforce start transitioning back to campus gradually – and in stages –likely beginning in June. That remains the intent. Ultimately though, the timeline will be determined by Governor Steve Sisolak, the state, and public health officials who are tracking trends of the COVID-19 pandemic in Southern Nevada....

    Dear Students,  The first phase of federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act funds are now fully awarded, and we are now moving to the second round of awards. Students who were awarded grants during the first phase received notification last week. The request process for students who did not receive funding during the first phase opens today.

    Dear colleagues, As final exams near and we wrap up this most unusual of spring semesters, I wanted to share our plans to resume on-campus business operations and how we will approach delivery of instruction for the next academic year. The safety and health of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors will remain at the forefront of our decisions and our actions. Over the last month or so, a...

    Dear students, Today begins a busy week of preparing for finals during a most unusual of spring semesters. I speak on behalf of our faculty and staff when I say we miss you being on our campuses and cheering you on as you make this final push to complete the spring semester and academic year successfully. I know the question on everyone’s mind is what will happen next fall. It’s something my...

    Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff, UNLV has been awarded $11.8 million in federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act funds to assist undergraduate, graduate, and professional students impacted by COVID-19-related difficulties during the Spring 2020 semester. Although this sounds like a lot of money, it will only provide some relief to a subset of our students. UNLV...

    Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff, Over the past several weeks I have read and heard about reports of xenophobia and racism tied to the COVID-19 pandemic across the country. These instances are reprehensible whenever and wherever they occur, but they are especially troubling when they happen in our own community.  Pandemic aside, UNLV will not tolerate behavior so at odds with our core...
  • Apr. 16, 2020
    Dear UNLV Community, As we continue to adapt to the challenges resulting from COVID-19, we will encounter students who exhibit signs of distress. They may disclose heightened anxiety over current events, financial or housing insecurity due to a lost job, suicidal thoughts, or they may have completely disengaged from a course. The UNLV Rebel Support Team continues to process referrals for...
