“AIM demonstrates the efforts of the university to promote the cultures of underrepresented students on campus in an effort to making campus as diverse as possible,” said Reg Chhen Stewart, the director of the university’s diversity initiatives, as well as the developing force behind the award-winning College Life 101 Program at the Center, which he has directed since 2003. “The center hopes to enrich students’ college experience by highlighting the diversity of such cultures.”
College Shadowing Day events, scheduled this year on April 17 and 24, target high school seniors, and are an example of the co-curricular programs the university implements to enhance and add dimension to the education that students receive both inside and out of the classroom.
During College Shadowing Day, Washoe County high school seniors will get a taste of university life. High school students are matched with a Nevada student volunteers and participate in a guided tour of the campus, as well as attend one college class. The students selected for the shadowing day have participated in the University’s Adopt-A-School Program.
