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.  Our state should have 2 top 100 universities to be competitive so we can build our workforce, attract great talent to our state, grow and diversify our economy, improve healthcare, and create a more prosperous future. We have to add at least 400 high producing faculty to UNLV to get there.  They will bring in millions in grants and contracts, support our emerging tech economy, produce patents and start-up businesses, provide a great education, and help attract tech firms relocating from other states."
