(Las Vegas, NV) — Don Snyder is now officially on the job as President of the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Snyder will serve until a national search is completed for a permanent president.
Snyder tells the KXNT Morning News a top priority is creating a medical school in Southern Nevada. It would give the university a significant role in every aspect of the community. He says working groups have been created statewide and locally to work on the project and he’ll be working closely with everyone involved.
Will there ever be an on campus stadium at UNLV ? Snyder says it would be a bridge builder with the resort industry and the community. Snyder says a stadium authority has been created to determine the need of all the stakeholders. The acting UNLV President says it’s a project that should happen.
