This year the guv and our legal leadership made a historical investment in education and Nevada’s future. While the lion’s share was set aside for rebuilding K-12, the financing increase to higher education was large. Both investments will benefit highercollege in the years ahead.My interactions with the Board of Regents over the last 4 years have assisted me crystalize 4 goals for our colleges and universities that, as the incoming chairman, I will certainly suggest to my coworkers. As we begin developing the upcoming budgets for the 2017 legal session, we should initially attend to management expenses. Starting with the Nevada System of Higher Education office, together with the chancellor we will scrutinize all administrative expenditures. We intend to end up being more efficient and more responsive to our total objective of student success.
