The Office of Faculty Affairs at UNLV is dedicated to supporting our faculty at every stage of their academic careers. As part of the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, we offer resources and services to facilitate faculty excellence in the areas of teaching, research, and service. Under the leadership of the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, the office performs a variety of programmatic and administrative functions.
Current events across the country have created new areas of debate and challenged traditional modes of discourse. Following President Len Jessup's letter on Sunday, the Provost's office has collected some instructional material that you may find helpful to facilitate discussions on challenging topics around campus and in the classroom. We hope you find these materials useful and we will add to them as more resources become available.Resources for Faculty and Staff Responding to Difficult Events Resources for Students Dealing with Challenging and Difficult Issues NSHE Academic Freedom and Responsibility Code
