Student Diversity & Social Justice – the office of Student Diversity & Social Justice (SDSJ) was created out of student demand for identity specific support. As such, several identity-based positions were created to serve UNLV’s traditionally underserved students through programs, initiatives, and services.
Diversity trainings - peer educators are dedicated to leading presentations, training sessions, and workshops related to social justice and diversity.
Jean Nidetch CARE Center - provides free and confidential support services to members of the UNLV community who have been impacted by sexual assault, relationship abuse, family violence, and/or stalking.
Latino/a Faculty Alliance - The Alliance of Latino/a Faculty’s mission is to support the Latinx and Hispanic communities on- and off-campus by promoting and advocating for diversity initiatives at UNLV.
Student Affinity Groups - There are numerous registered student organizations on campus where students can get involved.
