Conversation with Faculty: UNLV as an MSI, AANAPISI, and HSI


UNLV touts its rankings as being one of the most racially diverse universities in the nation. UNLV is also a dual-designated Minority-Serving Institution (MSI), being both an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI) and a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). The purpose of the faculty-panel is meant to create a gathering space where faculty can share their experiences and ideas for UNLV, especially now that UNLV holds dual AANAPISI-HSI designations. The panel will be moderated by Dr. Renee’ Watson, one of the MSI Student Council advisors.

This free event is open to all undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff. Come join our Meet n’ Greet panel featuring faculty across UNLV to share their experiences and perspectives around UNLV’s MSI statuses and where UNLV can go next.

Panel Facilitator:

  • Dr. Renee' T. Watson (Associate Vice President for Student Services, Student Life)


  • Professor Constancio R. Arnaldo Jr. (Department of Interdisciplinary, Gender, & Ethnic Studies)
  • Director Jose L. Melendrez, MSW (Office of Community Partnerships, School of Public Health)
  • Dr. Blanca E. Rincón (Department of Educational Psychology and Higher Education)
