PR Newswire: UNLV Joins Forces With Tech Talent Accelerator to Build New Pathways to High-Demand Careers
September 29, 2022

LAS VEGAS — September 29, 2022 — The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) today announced a collaboration with the tech talent accelerator SkillStorm designed to provide increased access to industry-recognized credentials in high-demand enterprise technologies, including AWS, Salesforce, CompTIA and Pega. An initiative of UNLV Continuing Education, the collaboration is specifically focused on driving technology talent to the UNLV community.

 “As an institution that is committed to supporting a growing population of nontraditional learners, we are always in search of new approaches that can help bridge the gap between learning and work,” said Chris L. Heavey, UNLV executive vice president and provost. “This collaboration is about expanding access to technology certification courses that can help our students, alumni, and community members access careers in the region’s fastest-growing industries.”

 This collaboration continues an ongoing effort at UNLV, a designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) and Minority Serving Institution (MSI), to create new opportunities for students and community members to access technology training. Last year, the institution launched an incubator to support student and faculty entrepreneurs, and this past summer, UNLV Continuing Education introduced multiple programs and certifications in Cybersecurity, Software Development, Data Science & Analytics and Graphic Design to upskill alumni and the local community.

 “Against a backdrop of ongoing technological change in the workplace, higher education institutions have both an opportunity – and a responsibility — to help students and community members alike access the skills that today’s employers demand,” said Justin Vianello, CEO at SkillStorm. “The University of Nevada, Las Vegas is exemplifying the crucial role that colleges and universities can play in building diverse pipelines of tech talent that help to close both talent and equity gaps across the country.”

 Registration is now open. For more information on these programs and how to enroll, visit https://unlv-catalog.skillstorm.com/.
