The UNLV Women’s Council (formerly the UNLV Status of Women Committee) has been in existence for more than 25 years. The Women’s Council meets with the president, provost, and senior advisors to the president to discuss areas of concern and to recommend administrative action to support a positive climate for women and families at UNLV.
Financial support for the creation of networking, communication initiatives, programming, and a modicum of administrative support has been provided and collaborative partnerships have developed.
The council is dedicated to ensuring that the voices of women at UNLV are heard and to driving UNLV’s commitment to the creation of an academic community in which women are respected, valued, and supported in their pursuit of personal and professional growth.
The Women’s Council has identified five key areas of focus:
- Hiring, Retention and Assessment
- Communication and Networking
- Family Advocacy
- Health and Safety
