(Jim invites Dr. Neal Smatresk, president of UNLV, to respond to Jim’s recent tweets about research revenue at UNLV.)

I’m Neal Smatresk, President of UNLV.  The past recession has made it clear that we need to diversify our economy and expand knowledge based industry in our state, and everyone agrees that we need a strong research university to provide the innovation, resources, and leadership to grow and attract new industries and produce a tech ready workforce.  UNLV has to be that institution, and our faculty will be the folks who help us build a new diversified economy.
