UNLV’s Climate Action Plan

Engage. Innovate. Achieve.

UNLV’s Sustainability Task Force has partnered with Brailsford & Dunlavey, a program management firm based in Washington, D.C., to create a campus-wide climate action plan, nicknamed the Rebel CAP. Once complete, the Rebel CAP will provide the roadmap for a more sustainable and climate-resilient future for UNLV.

Rebel CAP Kick-Off Event


The climate action planning process kicked off in May 2023 and will take approximately 12 to 18 months to complete. It includes three key phases. Please note that the dates for each phase are estimates and may change.

  • Timeline: Spring through fall 2023
  • Activities
    • Quantitative and qualitative data collection.
    • Solicit feedback from faculty, staff, and students using the Rebel CAP ideas assessment survey.
    • Establish a formal engagement structure for decision-making, including the existing Sustainability Task Force and new, topic-specific working groups.

  • Timeline: Fall 2023 to winter 2024
