Get Involved Today

This webpage will be in constant revision as the GPSA begins preparations for the 79th Legislative Session (2017).

In support of UNLV’s "Path to Top Tier", it is imperative that graduate and professional students stay actively involved in communicating with NV Legislators why increasing state funding in support of higher education is crucial to the diversified growth of Nevada’s economy and the betterment of the state’s community members.

Any suggestions, comments, etc. you have how to strengthen our position should be directed to the GPSA Treasurer and Chair of Government Relations Committee Kimberly Florence.
