About Nevada Today

Nevada Today is the University's official site for news and information. Like the University, Nevada Today is constantly changing and improving. Our latest redesign launched August 21, 2019 and includes a host of new features, in addition to a whole new look that's accessible, to boot. 

We solicit content from all across campus to make sure we're getting the latest stories. Writers include students, staff, academic faculty and a cadre of dedicated administrative faculty members. Even with ears all over campus, we do still occasionally miss important goings on and ask that you help us out by submitting stories you think we may have overlooked.

To reach us, feel free to email communications@unr.edu, and we'll be in touch soon.

 

Thanks,
