About the Joe

The Joe Crowley Student Union opened on November 16, 2007 and has since been a student-centered building that serves as the living room of campus and complements the academic experience through cultural, educational, social and recreational programs. 


The Joe Crowley Student Union is the community center of the University where students are the number one priority. We collaborate with others to enhance the intellectual program of the University and to make activities a cooperative factor with education. The Union encourages self-directed exploration, geared toward the diverse needs of the University and Northern Nevada community.


The department of the Joe Crowley Student Union aspires to collaborate with others to encourage students to graduate and become responsible citizens and ethical leaders in our global society by creating an inclusive and welcoming community that enhances the student experience through our facility, services, activities and innovative programs.
