Registrar Jennifer Bonilla departs UNLV, Vice Provost team leading transition

Feb. 6, 2019


Jennifer Bonilla, interim registrar, has departed UNLV to pursue an opportunity as a CEO in the private sector. Dr. Bonilla took the reins of the Registrar’s Office in June 2018, after serving as graduate programs director for the Department of Health Care Administration & Policy in the School of Public Health.

Prior to UNLV, Dr. Bonilla held several executive roles in global service organizations, managing business outsourcing and logistics services for Fortune 500 companies, hospitals, airports and universities.

We are grateful for her service and wish her the best in her new role.

In light of Dr. Bonilla’s departure, former Vice Provost Rainier Spencer will serve as acting registrar and manage registrar operations with administrative support from Vice Provost Ngai Pindell and Vice Provost Brent Drake. They will be working closely with Vice President of Student Affairs Juanita Fain and Associate Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services Michael Sauer. In the meantime, Enrollment and Student Services will conduct a national search to fill the Registrar position.    

Questions about the transition can be directed to Dr. Spencer at, or by calling (702) 895-0892. For general information, please contact the Registrar’s Office at, or call (702) 895-3443.
