Notable: School of Dental Medicine

UNLV School of Dental Medicine hosted 134 local high school students during the annual Upward Bound event, which provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education. The dental school’s faculty, staff, and students hosted tours of the campus and provided demonstrations in the simulation laboratory. This is the second consecutive year the School of Dental Medicine has participated.
