Free Speech on Nevada’s Higher Education Campuses

On March 1, 2019, the Nevada System of Higher Education adopted its “Freedom of Expression: Aspirational Statement of Values,” developed in partnership with and for all eight state higher education institutions. The statement reaffirms a commitment to fostering an environment for open and robust exchange of ideas and promoting participation in higher education.

Other Resources

There are many offices across campus which may provide resources to students, staff, and faculty. Please note this is not an exhaustive list.

University Police Services

Call University Police Services by dialing 9-1-1 from an on-campus phone or 702-895-3669 if the incident is nearing the level of crisis. A crisis exists whenever a person’s behavior poses imminent danger of:

  • causing or threatening harm to self or others,
  • impeding lawful activities of other members of the campus community,
  • interfering with the health, safety, or well-being of other members of the UNLV community, and/or

If you are ever unsure of whether or not a crisis exists, err on the side of caution and call University Police.
