Executive director of the UNLV Alumni AssociationReach out with your suggestions for improving alumni programs.
And you had great suggestions for us…
When you were a student, the opportunity to interact with alumni was very important to you.
So we are enhancing mentoring programs.
From speaking in a class to serving on an advisory board, you’d be surprised how many ways you can help current students. But we can do much more. Fostering student-alumni interactions is part UNLV’s Top Tier strategic plan.
You’d have liked more career services support as a student and now you believe it’s important for all alumni to help identify job opportunities for fellow Rebels.
So we are rebuilding programs hurt by the recession.
UNLV and the Alumni Association is reinvesting in career services programs all across campus to make that easier. In the meantime, visit the website to access 42 webinars covering all stages of career development.
You want to be invited to campus events more often — even when it’s unlikely that you may attend.
So we are extending a standing invitation!
Alumni relations is rethinking its approach to events and will work to share more information with you.
Geographic distance and time are the top barriers to getting involved in alumni programs.
So we are coming to a city near you.
With 40 percent of our graduates living outside Nevada, UNLV knows it’s important to boost regional events and clubs programs. Reach out to help organize one near you.

Our most ardent alumni love stories about campus history, community engagement, and the accomplishments of fellow alumni.
So we are bringing you more.
