Why I’m a proud UNLV faculty member …

I’ve dedicated the past 29 years of my career to UNLV as a faculty member, teacher, researcher and administrator. I am part of the university, and the university is part of me. I bleed Rebel red. I have witnessed the transformation of the university from a “Rising Star in Higher Education” in 1988 into the “Different, Daring, and Diverse” university it is today. I am proud to report that the rebel spirit is alive and well.

First and foremost, I am proud of the past and current UNLV students. They are some of the brightest and best anywhere. They are and will continue to be the leaders for the Las Vegas Valley and the state. They make Nevada the state it is today. I am never happier than when I am around our students, and it brings a proud smile to my face every time I hear of their successes.

I am proud of my colleagues at the university. UNLV’s faculty and staff are a highly dedicated group that constantly amazes me with their willingness to give the extra effort to make our university better and our students more prepared for the future. They are the driving force to make the university better and better.
