Protecting and preserving Lake Tahoe – the gem of the Sierra – is central to the mission of the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe. We are dedicated to conserving Lake Tahoe, its watershed, and its recreationally-supported economy.
The University's efforts are aligned with the planning and implementation of the Environmental Improvement Program – a multisector effort implemented by governmental organizations, Lake Tahoe’s business community, scientific community and the Washoe Tribe. Research, education and outreach align closely with the bistate efforts of the Tahoe Science Advisory Council of which the University is a member. In addition, our new University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe location is proud to support world-class scientific and creative workshops that bring expertise and knowledge to the basin to help solve the pressing global to local issues of our time.
