Marta Meana

Moving the University Forward

Part of the UNLV community for more than 20 years, Acting President Marta Meana is honored to serve during the transition period for the university.


The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is an internationally recognized research institution that is truly one of America’s great success stories. In 60 years we have grown from 28 students in a single building to a thriving campus of more than 30,000 students, 3,300 faculty and staff, and outstanding educational, research, and recreational facilities.

The Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) Board of Regents voted on June 4, 2018 to appoint Marta Meana acting UNLV president. Meana, who has been dean of UNLV's Honors College since 2012, began her new role on July 1, 2018 and will serve until the successful completion of a national search for the university's next president.


UNLV has made great strides in achieving a diverse educational environment and developing an institutional culture that recognizes the importance and value of diversity in higher education.

Diversity is an ongoing organic process, which involves:

  • The attainment of a critical mass of members of underrepresented populations in the faculty, staff, and student body.
  • An intellectual environment and curricular program that challenges both students and faculty to engage experiences and viewpoints unfamiliar to them.
