Colleges, Academic & Outreach Units
Although the University of Nevada, Reno is a state institution, less than 35 percent of its annual funding is provided from state appropriations. Private support plays a critical role in the Colleges and Outreach Units in ensuring that the university continues to fulfill its mission of teaching, research and service.
