Community2Campus (C2C) recently collaborated with the City of Henderson to share information about UNLV academic opportunities with city staff. On April 9 over thirty employees scheduled academic consultations to have one-on-one advising about areas of interest. Some employees expressed an interest in earning a graduate degree, while others sought to complete an undergraduate degree or train in a new field. These academic consultations allowed for individual discussion and advisement regarding financial aid, timelines, resources, and managing the admissions pathway to UNLV.
The Office of Community2Campus has moved. It is now located on the second floor of the Campus Services Building on the UNLV Main Campus. The office of Executive Director Elizabeth Baldizan, Ed.D. is in Room 206. Administrative assistant Sharon Savage is located in Room 207.
