A Message from UNLV President Neal J. Smatresk


 

As the new president of UNLV, I’m delighted to encourage you to consider graduate studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. UNLV is a wonderful institution with exceptional programs, excellent faculty, and a supportive atmosphere where graduate education thrives.

As you explore graduate education at UNLV, you’ll be pleased to learn that nearly a quarter of UNLV’s students are currently enrolled in graduate/professional programs. The number of students in these programs has increased by 33 percent since 2003. These numbers should provide some indication of the significance of graduate studies at UNLV. We know that high quality graduate education is pivotal to the growth and sophistication of our institution.

In addition to supporting the educational and research missions of the university, graduate education also plays a pivotal role in preparing tomorrow’s leaders in many professions. It enables our students to move into the workplace with the kind of preparation that only advanced study can provide. Alumni of our graduate programs are the professionals who lead our community in health care, education, law enforcement, social work, business, art, and engineering, just to name a few critically important fields. Their contributions are vital to the quality of life that we enjoy we enjoy here in Southern Nevada.

Again, we welcome your interest in UNLV and encourage you to join us in our dedication to research and graduate education as we create a bright future for our university and community.

Dr. Neal J. Smatresk

UNLV President
