Guest: Neal Smatresk

(Dr. Neal Smatresk, president of UNLV, responds to Jim’s recent tweets about research revenue at UNLV.) 
"I’m Neal Smatresk, President of UNLV.  We are in competition with every other state, and especially with neighboring Mountain West states like Arizona, Utah, Colorado and even California.  Each of these states have invested deeply in higher education, and built their research capacity.  Compared to UNLV's 700 faculty, the University of Utah has 3000, ASU has 2500, CU, Boulder has 2600, and the list goes on.  Long range thoughtful planning and support of higher education have built booming economies in these states."

  1. What kind of long range, thoughtful planning does UNLV propose?
