A healthy Nevada includes all Nevadans.

Black lives matter.

It is important to confront our past and seek to build a more equitable and just community.
Our University stands in solidarity with Black and African American students, staff and faculty.

Land acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the University of Nevada, Reno is situated on the traditional homelands of the Numu (Northern Paiute), Wašiw (Washoe), Newe (Western Shoshone), Nuwu (Southern Paiute) peoples. These lands continue to be a gathering place for Indigenous Peoples and we recognize their deep connections to these places. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and learn on their territory.
