Welcome

UNLV's Division of Research and Economic Development creates a campus environment that supports and promotes superior research, creative, and scholarly pursuits, ensuring our students and faculty can recognize their full intellectual potential.

"Being exposed to research has opened my eyes to a world I had only hoped to be part of. It has not only positively affected the way I view the world, but also my classroom experience through the practice of what I learn during the lectures."

Olivier Clavel
UNLV undergraduate and OUR ambassador
