EAB

Higher education best practices at your fingertips

Overview

Our research partnership with EAB provides everyone at UNLV with resources to learn about best practices in higher education and discover actionable insights. EAB works closely with leaders within each division and across the university to inform thinking and execute on strategy. All faculty, staff, and administrators across campus have access to EAB’s website and can tap into the research, ready-to-use toolkits, on demand webinars, and other resources that are available as part of our partnership. We also have the ability to speak with EAB experts as needed to discuss specific topics or brainstorm on strategies.

What is EAB?
