By 2025, UNLV will be recognized as a top tier public university in research, education, and community impact.
UNLV’s Top Tier Mission
UNLV’s diverse faculty, students, staff, and alumni promote community well-being and individual achievement through education, research, scholarship, creative activities, and clinical services. We stimulate economic development and diversification, foster a climate of innovation, promote health, and enrich the cultural vitality of the communities that we serve.
The university recognizes the importance of Infrastructure and Shared Governance in all aspects, and this foundational goal area is measured and monitored as part of the strategic plan. An improved infrastructure and a healthy shared government model are both pivotal in order to accomplish the four core themes/pathway goals. The university continually develops and leverages the conditions necessary for success, which includes an effective organizational structure, an improved infrastructure, a service-oriented culture, meaningful faculty engagement in shared governance, and the capacity for informed decision-making and informed risk-taking.
The core themes of UNLV, the objectives, and their indicators of achievement express the mission of the university. The core themes describe in broad statements what UNLV plans to accomplish and reflect the values that are shared by faculty and staff. Evaluation of the metrics associated with the indicators of achievement will demonstrate how effectively UNLV is carrying out its mission.
