Institution & Location

INSTITUTION: AN OVERVIEW

Institutional Background/History

In 1864, the Constitution of the State of Nevada calls for the creation of a “State University” with instruction in Agriculture, Mechanic Arts and Mining. Ten years later, the University of Nevada, Reno was founded.

Since its inception in 1874 as the state of Nevada’s first university, the University of Nevada, Reno has delivered on the promise of providing the citizens of Nevada with a better future. As the state’s land-grant university, and ranked among the nation’s top research universities by the Carnegie Foundation, the University is known as a high-impact institution. Students and faculty are solving the pressing issues our time and providing new paths for the state’s next generation of leaders.

Over the past decade, the University has grown at a dynamic and record-setting rate, including student enrollment, number of National Merit scholars, student diversity, faculty achievement and productivity as well as infrastructure. The record growth of the modern University of Nevada, Reno, is in direct contrast to the first few decades of the University’s existence.

When the University was founded in 1874, fresh from the enabling language of the Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862, which created an endowment fund specifically for colleges and laid the groundwork for the modern American public university, it was in many ways fighting an uphill battle for relevance.

Nevada was sparsely populated, with only a handful of high schools – by 1886 there numbered only seven. The University’s first iteration in Elko, which welcomed the institution’s first student body of seven students in October 1874, was more of a preparatory school than a true university. The fledgling university’s prospects for survival improved in 1885-86, when the Board of Regents transferred the University from Elko to Reno. The campus, now nestled on a hopeful bluff above the Truckee Meadows, opened its first building, Morrill Hall, in spring 1886 and welcomed 35 students. By 1900 the campus had grown to 11 buildings, two student dormitories and a gymnasium. In 1936, University enrollment surpassed the 1,000-student mark.

Beginning in the 1960s, the stage was set for the most sustained period of growth for the University, which has continued to this day. The University achieved national prominence in many areas over the next several decades. Drs. Robert Gorrell and Charlton Laird’s “Modern English Handbook” became the standard textbook for colleges and universities throughout the nation for more than three decades. Walter Van Tilburg Clark, author of “The Ox-Bow Incident” – along with University graduate Robert Laxalt considered the state’s finest novelist – was the University’s Writer-in-Residence for a decade. Department of Psychology researchers Allen and Beatrix Gardner conducted internationally acclaimed communication research with chimpanzees.

In 2017, the University unveiled the 108,000-square-foot E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center as well as the successful renovations of historic Lincoln Hall and Thompson Hall. By fall 2018, the University reached nearly 22,000 students, with a record of nearly 5,000 students graduating during the 2018-2019 academic year. The University also reached high-water marks in National Merit and Presidential Scholars, while faculty productivity, campus diversity and retention all remained at record levels. In 2018, the campus’ newest student residential community, Great Basin Hall, opened.

Not surprisingly, in 2019, the University learned that it achieved one of the most prestigious honors an institution of higher learning can ever receive: It was chosen as one of just 130 universities by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education as an “R1” institution – “very high research activity” – which is reserved for doctoral-granting universities with exceptional levels of research activity.

About Reno, Nevada

In the heart of the Sierra Nevada sits Reno, which wasn’t always the popular destination for outdoor and indoor entertainment enthusiasts that it is today. Its history was built on mining, and for decades the town’s prosperity was based on gold, silver and other precious metals. Although Reno and the surrounding areas still have active mines today, the city is much more immersed in recreation, the arts and interesting cuisine. Most residents will tell you that it’s called The Biggest Little City for this reason: it is very urbanized but still has a small-town feel. Gaming, vintage cars, dancing, and hip restaurants may define the city now, but Reno is very much attached to its heritage and rural roots.

Most don’t know that Reno is within hours of major metropolitan meccas such as San Francisco and minutes from world-class mountain resorts including Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe. Squaw Valley was home to the 1960 Winter Olympics and the community is actively courting the events’ return in the near future. If the plethora of winter sports activities isn’t enough, the surrounding Reno area also is home to more than 50 renowned golfing venues. The PGA tour’s Barracuda Championship (formerly Reno-Tahoe Open) is hosted at Reno’s Montreaux Golf and Country Club.

The city boasts four striking seasons, which allows its residents to participate in countless recreational activities. In addition to outdoor fun, locals favor the many festivals and annual events Reno has to offer. The Reno Rodeo, Artown, The Reno River Festival, Hot August Nights, The Great Reno Balloon Race, National Championship Air Races, Street Vibrations, and the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off are just a few. In between numerous events, locals also enjoy checking out new exhibits at the Museum of Art, the Discovery Museum and the Automobile Museum. For more culture, citizens attend fantastic performing arts shows at the Pioneer Center, and for a little more adventure, they’ll enjoy a game at the National Bowling Stadium which features 78 lanes and can hold more than 1,000 spectators.

There’s never a dull moment in the city. Almost every season is jam-packed with sporting events, from minor league baseball team, Reno Aces, to NBA development team, Reno Bighorns and the never-disappointing University of Nevada, Reno Wolf Pack athletics teams.

After attending all these events, one is sure to build up an appetite. Luckily, being the tourist destination that it is, Reno is home to some of the best restaurants in the region. Eclectic palates need not worry – in Reno, you can find any type of food, whether it’s a Greek affair, French feast, vegan cuisine, or an indulgent Awful Awful Burger.

Not to be overshadowed by the attractions, Reno really is a great little city for business, living and fun. The cost of living is 5.8 percent lower than the national average and has a median commute time of 18.6 minutes. The city also is ranked in the Top 50 Bike Friendly Cities in the country and continually is improving bike lane area expansions.

We can’t forget to mention that while working and residing here, residents benefit from no income tax, no inheritance tax, and no estate tax. The combination of lifestyle and financial incentives has proven irresistible to such headlining employers as Tesla, Microsoft, Amazon, and Apple.

Education is impressive with a major Tier One university, a community college, an excellent selection of public, private, and charter schools and the nationally recognized Davidson Academy for the gifted and talented.

When you come to visit or stay, don’t forget to bring your dog. Reno offers entire parks dedicated to our fur-friends and even restaurants welcoming them on certain days of the week.

With a population approaching half-a-million encompassing its surrounding areas, Reno remains as golden as its mining heritage. It’s made up of long-time, multi-generational Nevada residents and newly converted Renoites who can’t imagine leaving once they’ve established their roots. Whether you identify with the country lifestyle or the more modern scene, in Reno there truly is something for everyone.

Both plans emphasize greater connection to the community through academic programs with clear benefit for the knowledge-based industries of Nevada, greater integration between a sustainably built campus environment and a more economically diverse and culturally enriching downtown corridor, as well as the critical exchange of knowledge and innovation through transformational research that help to define a dynamic institution of higher learning and to characterize its equally dynamic community.
