Stay Connected

Dear Nevada State Campus Community,

It is with heavy hearts that we extend our deepest condolences to the families affected by the tragic incident that claimed the lives of our UNLV colleagues. This senseless act has left us all in profound sorrow, and our thoughts are with those who are... grieving.

During these challenging times, let us come together to offer compassion and support. We send healing energy to our UNLV friends and colleagues, standing ready to assist in any way possible.

We would like to inform you that the NSHE Chancellor has issued a notice to reopen campus December 8, 2023.

We will resume all classes and campus services, recognizing that the academic calendar and support for our students are critical in this moment. We are here for our students, but also want to encourage those with direct impact from the UNLV tragedy to discuss needs with their supervisors. (For example, we know some NS employees utilize UNLV childcare which will remain closed on Friday.)

The swift response time and courage displayed by University Police Services undoubtedly saved lives. Citywide emergency response coordination played a crucial role in ensuring the safety of our campus community. We are thankful for the attention and resources mobilized to keep our campus safe.

As we collectively process and make sense of this tragedy, the RSC Ballroom will serve as a gathering space on Friday 12/8 for those who wish to come together for fellowship and reflection. Food to be served 1-3 p.m. Show your support for UNLV this Friday by wearing scarlet and gray in honor of our sister institution.

Let us stand united as a community, offering comfort and strength to one another during this difficult time.


Be well,
DeRionne Pollard, Ph.D.
