Campus Governance

UNLV employees are an integral part of the shared governance structure on campus. Here, committees are charged with addressing concerns and issues affecting each employee classification group. Find out how to get involved.

Getting Involved

  • A governing body of faculty members that represents the faculty in all matters of interest and concern, including academic policies and procedures.

  • Protects and promotes the rights and benefits of classified employees at UNLV.

  • A standing committee of the Faculty Senate that reviews and recommends policy and communicates professional staff initiatives and concerns to the Faculty Senate.


Employees are just as involved in campus activities as our students are — from ballroom dancing and club sports to lunchtime walking groups and knitting. Can't find an activity that interests you? Feel free to start your own employee interest group or club.


At UNLV, there are numerous activities that bring our entire campus community together. Throughout the year, employees participate in various academic events, including commencement and the academic faculty convocation. Employees also enjoy cultural events on campus such as the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration, the Charles Vanda Master Series, and the Barrick Lecture Series, which has featured renowned speakers such as Bob Dole and Walter Cronkite.

Additionally, you can show your Rebel pride during homecoming week or compete in the UNLV corporate challenge games. There are also numerous employee recognition events, including the annual faculty and staff holiday party and the president's classified employee of the year ceremony.
