ATTENTION: SAGE SUPPORTERS AND FRIENDS
In its mission to enrich the Las Vegas community and provide transformational educational opportunities, UNLV is embarking on a campus-wide initiative to provide the best and most comprehensive youth programming in the region. This initiative will involve the strategic integration of existing programs, as well as the development of exciting new ones. The goal will be to expose students in Clark County to various aspects of the college experience with pointed programming that educates, enthralls, instills the college dream, and showcases the incredible resources available right here at UNLV.
The Summer Advanced Gifted Education (SAGE) will be an important part of this integrated youth program initiative. We are planning educational experiences that bring gifted students in direct contact with renowned scientists, scholars, and artists in their labs, classes, and studios. However, the implementation of these innovative programming changes will require time. The SAGE program will thus be suspended in the summer of 2013, as we prepare for a re-launch in 2014.
Although this may be disappointing news to some of you who were expecting the SAGE Summer 2013 schedule shortly, it is a necessary hiatus while we regroup and re-tool. Think of it as a renovation! Our aim is to provide cutting-edge enrichment programs that are sustainable. Your support and involvement in SAGE has been greatly appreciated and we hope to count on it in the future.
In the meantime, we would appreciate your feedback and ideas on the types of youth programming that you would like to see – for all ages, ability levels, and across topic areas. We will soon be posting and distributing a survey to collect your thoughts. Your input is important to us and will help us design programs that meet your needs and expectations.
We are excited about this venture and count on your support and interest in expanding the range of opportunities for Clark County students to go to college well before they go to college.
