Left: A UNLV student reviews one of the University Libraries' many scholarship resources. Right: Marydean Martin and Charlie Silvestri began supporting the University Libraries when they were UNLV students. In addition to Martin’s donation last winter to fund the Libraries’ Scholarship Boot Camps, the couple made a donation this summer to name the group study room in Lied Library pictured above. Both are staunch supporters of education in Southern Nevada, with a high school named in honor of Silvestri and Nevada State College’s library named in honor of Martin.

Over the last five years, UNLV developed a comprehensive retention, progression, and completion plan to promote student success and increase graduation rates. However, this plan does not address the most critical obstacle students face when pursuing a degree: the cost of higher education.
