UNLV.edu RedesignOn May 28, 2016, the Web & Digital Strategy team launched UNLV’s redesigned homepage and top-level webpages. Share your thoughts With a lot of input from students, staff, and faculty, we have designed a site that is more visually appealing, easier to use, and does a better job of telling the UNLV story. Thanks to those of you who have provided your thoughts and suggestions throughout the year-long process. Though we have launched the first phase of the redesign project, we still want more feedback from you. Good or bad, tell us what you think about the new design.
