UNLV’s Academic Multicultural Resource Center

Where our communities come together.

The Intersection

We are a one-stop resource for UNLV’s highly diverse student body — a comprehensive multicultural center grounded in the academic life of our students. As an intersecting campus resource, we help ensure students, particularly first-generation and students of color, successfully navigate their academic careers.

Here, all members of campus can discuss their differences, discover their similarities, and build a shared sense of belonging.

The Intersection: UNLV's Academic Multicultural Center

One Stop in the Heart of Campus

Navigating a large campus like UNLV’s can seem daunting. We chose the center’s prime location — on the first floor of the Student Union — as a sign of the university’s commitment to creating the inclusive environment for academic success.

Drop in SU Room 121 and ask questions. We’ll connect you to the right people, information, and services from across campus.
