Support the College

Gifts support scholarships, professional experiences, fund assistantships, and allow opportunities for student research competitions.

Private gifts to the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs are used to support our most important assets: our students. These gifts provide scholarships to the best and brightest, fund graduate assistantships that allow students to focus on research, help faculty maintain dynamic and innovative programs, and give the dean a means of cultivating the areas that present the greatest opportunities to move the college forward to its strategic goals.

Without private support, the quality of the educational experience at UNLV would suffer and the ability of the university to support the economic growth of Southern Nevada would be crippled. Thus, your gift to the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs is more than just a donation — it's an investment in the future of this dynamic metropolis.

For more information about giving to the Greenspun College of Urban Affairs, contact Jeffrey Holbrook, Director of Development,, 702-895-0036.
