The community colleges already have strong relationships with Nevada State College, UNLV and UNR. For example, the College of Southern Nevada has UNLV and NSC advisors on its campuses to help students transfer to obtain a four-year degree. Why put these collaborations at risk with four new governance systems? With the current higher education system under the control of a 13-member Board of Regents, collaborations can happen in an efficient manner. Trying to get agreement among 13 people is a lot easier than the dozens that would be involved with five governing boards.
