International Nevada

Nevada and the World

The University of Nevada, Reno's core mission is to prepare students to live, work and compete in an increasingly interconnected, polychromatic, globalized world. Over the past decades, more than half the world's population has joined the world's free economic system. Therefore, we are proud that we both welcome international students and educators to our campus, as well as provide native-born students and faculty with opportunities to gain international understanding through our course offerings and by studying or teaching abroad. This page is a gateway to the many global touchstones Nevada has to offer. Feel free to explore. If you have a new offering, please let us know.
