Dear Educational Outreach community;
UNLV Continuing Education is kicking off 2020 with a revised (and vastly improved!) policy on staff and alumni discounts.
Beginning with spring 2020 classes UNLV staff will receive a standard 15 percent discount on professional development classes and 5 percent off personal enrichment classes. Alumni will receive 5 percent off both professional development and personal enrichment classes. In the past, discounts for staff and alumni were determined on an individual class basis; the new policy standardizes the discounts with very few exceptions.
The Spring 2020 course catalog was released online and sent in the mail this week, so now is a great time to take a peek at new offerings. UNLV’s Continuing Education staff has been working hard to develop new classes and certificates to help you get ahead at work or even launch a new career.

There is a point in everyone’s life where they reconsider their career path. Dan Beatty’s story shows that, with hard work and vision, it’s possible to re-chart your life’s course.
“This program has just been such a great opportunity for me and I recommend it and suggest it for anyone in the nonprofit sector.” -Aries Cyrus-Sims, UNLV Nonprofit Certificate

She strove to make an impact on the lives of individuals. But how could she turn that passion into a career?

Nicholle Pendergraft had a successful career as a makeup artist and hair stylist with some of the best shows to ever grace the Las Vegas Strip. It was a dream job, but with each new show in Las Vegas came the closure of the previous one. For a single mother, such job uncertainty was not optimal.
