In the Planning Stage for Dec 2013/Jan 2014 ANTARCTIC TRIP A visit to Antarctica is a visit to the very ends of the earth. This land of glittering ice, majestic peaks, and dazzling beauty is a haven for migratory birds, whales, seals, and other marine mammals who come each summer to feast in its food-rich coastal waters. We will be visiting during the Antarctic summer (our winter) when temperatures are mild, generally hovering just above freezing. Your UNLV trip leaders both have extensive experience in the Antarctic. UNLV geologist Margaret Rees, Ph.D. was funded by the National Science Foundation to conduct geological research in the Transantarctic Mountains for eight field seasons. For her research and service she was awarded the U.S. Congressional Polar Medal for Scientific Service in Antarctica and an Antarctic mountain was named in her honor. Nevada artist and naturalist Sharon K. Schafer has worked extensively in the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Islands as an artist-in-residence, photographer, and videographer. Her paintings and photographs of the Antarctic region have been exhibited in museums across the country. For more information as it becomes available please contact Michelle Baker at michelle.baker@unlv.edu or 702-895-3254.

In the Planning Stage for April/May 2014 EXPLORE THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS & QUITO: A NATURAL HISTORY AND PHOTOGRAPHIC ADVENTURE Join Dr. Margaret N. (Peg) Rees and artist Sharon K. Schafer as we travel to Quito, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. You will spend two evenings in Quito, the first city to be declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Explore Quito’s history, art, and architecture with an included cultural tour of the city. After Quito, we will depart on an incredible ten-day Galapagos experience onboard our privately chartered 16-person catamaran. The catamaran’s small size will allow you a very intimate, comfortable, and personal exploration of the islands. The Galapagos Islands are a small, rocky archipelago 500 miles off the coast of Ecuador. Isolated from the mainland for millions of years, the islands are home to an abundance of unique wildlife. You will cruise to pristine islands and walk among colonies of animals and birds unfazed by your presence. Observe magnificent Galapagos marine iguana, experience up-close encounters with nesting flightless cormorants, watch the magnificent frigate bird in its courtship display, and snorkel amid tropical fish, sea turtles, and sea lions. The Galapagos Islands and Quito adventure is for active travelers. Quito is located at 9,100 feet above sea level, and when exploring the Galapagos Islands, you should be able to comfortably climb in and out of small rubber rafts.

Student Privacy In accordance with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas policy and the U.S. Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), UNLV vigorously protects the privacy of student education records. UNLV does not release private records of individual students, such as grades and class schedules, without prior written consent of the student. As permitted under federal law, the sole exception to the above practice is the release of “directory” information considered to be public in nature and not generally deemed to be an invasion of privacy. At UNLV, the following categories are defined as “directory” information: name, address, email address, telephone number, dates of attendance, full-time/part-time status, academic major, college and grade level, heights and weights of members of athletic teams, academic honors, other academic institutions recently attended, participation in UNLV organizations, and degrees earned and dates attended.

Books and Supplies Unless otherwise noted in the course description, all books and classspecific supplies are included in your registration payment.

All of our classes have a maximum number of seats available for registration. With our enrollments increasing and courses becoming more and more popular, we are seeing more classes than ever filling up. Once a class fills up, we will have to put you on a wait list. If a seat in the class becomes available or if we have enough people on the wait list to open a new section, we will contact you. Register early to assure yourself a seat in the class.

CEUs A number of courses in this catalog offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The Continuing Education Unit is a standard unit of measure for quantifying continuing adult education and training activities. One CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation in an organized education/ training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction.

Attendance Policy Attendance is required for all Continuing Education classes. Please communicate with your instructor on what to do if you need to miss a class.

Student Code of Conduct A detailed Student Code of Conduct policy is available on the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs’ website. Students are responsible for adhering to this code of conduct while participating in all UNLV programs and services.

Copyright Policy The university requires all members of the university community to familiarize themselves and to follow copyright and fair-use requirements. You are individually and solely responsible for violations of copyright and fair-use laws. The university will neither protect nor defend you nor assume any responsibility for employee or student violations of copyright and fair-use laws.
