Undergraduate Experiential Learning at UNLV: Tell Me More


Jan. 24, 2022, 11:30am to 12:30pm

CBC C120


Experiential learning entails learning by doing. As a complement to what one learns in the classroom, there are various ways to learn through direct action. In this panel discussion, we hear about the benefits and opportunities for getting involved in research, study abroad and internships at UNLV. This panel should be of interest to undergraduates seeking the most from their time at UNLV but also graduate students, faculty and community partners contributing to experiential learning activities. Audience members can attend in-person (in CBC C120) or register to attend online.


  • Dr. Levent Atici, Director of the UNLV Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and Professor of Anthropology: opportunities for undergraduate research
  • Nathalie Martinez, spring 2021 UNLV Distinguished Graduate and BA in Anthropology and French: study abroad (e.g., Costa Rica and France) and research experiences and opportunities
  • Jera Manesse, senior UNLV Anthropology student: fall 2021 intern at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in southern Utah and internship opportunities more broadly
