Tuesday's Guest: Neal Smatresk

(Dr. Neal Smatresk, president of UNLV, responds to Jim’s recent tweets about research revenue at UNLV.) 
"Im Neal Smatresk, President of UNLV. One of the great challenges we have in our city is finding a way to create a more educated citizenry. 20% of our citizens have higher education degrees. In other states, their targets are 50 60 % of the population with a higher ed degree. We have a first generation population thats very cost sensitive. Big hikes in tuition wont lead us to where we have to go. We have to find a way to support our access mission and grow our work force so that our state can be competitive with other states and other metros."
