UNLV recognizes that a student body that is diverse with respect to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class background, and geography—among other dimensions of cultural difference—benefits and enriches the educational experiences of all students, faculty, and staff. Thus, the university seeks to promote campus diversity by enrolling and employing a larger number of minorities and women where these groups have been historically (and continually) under-represented within the university. The reports in this section represent some of the ways in which UNLV is tracking its progress in promoting access and inclusion to all students.

57% of UNLV’s degree-seeking undergraduate students report being part of a racial or ethnic minority.
