The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) is a public, coeducational university located in Paradise, Nevada, USA, known for its programs in History, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Hotel administration, Fine Arts, and Management Information Systems. The university is ranked in the category of Doctoral/Research Universities–Intensive by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The Atlantic Monthly recognized UNLV's English department as having one of the nation's most innovative MFA programs and one of the top five doctoral programs in creative writing. The 337 acres (136 ha) UNLV campus is located on Maryland Parkway, a heavily-traveled north-south arterial street, in southeastern Las Vegas about 1.5 mi (2.4 km) east of the Las Vegas Strip. Ground breaking on the original 60 acres (24 ha) site was in April, 1956. UNLV has purchased a 640-acre (260 ha) site in North Las Vegas for future expansion. In addition, there is a Shadow Lane Campus, located just east of UMC Medical Center on Charleston and Shadow Lane. A project called Midtown UNLV is examining options of revamping Maryland Parkway to better serve the campus community. UNLV also houses and manages the National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the Environment, a supercomputer facility sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
