The Latino Research Center at the University of Nevada, Reno serves as a nexus between the Latino community and the university. Its mission is to foster research, student achievement, faculty collaboration, advocacy, and outreach in a manner that best meets the educational needs and goals of the State of Nevada and best honors the intellectual and cultural capital of the Latino presence in our state.

Latino graduates and their families and freinds are invited to attend this special celebration honoring the many academic achievements of our students.

There is a growing problem of unlicensed healthcare in Nevada’s Latino community. Uncertified individuals in Nevada have been posing as qualified healthcare providers and have been illegally practicing medicine. In response to a rising public health concern, the UNR Latino Research Center, the Nevada Public Health Foundation, the Nevada State Health Division and the Nevada Attorney General’s Office are working together to build a statewide campaign that will raise awareness to educate the community and help stop people from falling prey to these fake physicians.
