Nevada Regents Concerned About Chancellor’s Work To Kill Critical Research
Members of the Nevada Board of Regents say they’re concerned about the leadership of Chancellor Dan Klaich and want more information about reports that Klaich quashed research critical of his administration.
At least one regent says he is losing confidence in Klaich, and it may be time for a change.
Nevada college and university faculty and state legislators also have expressed alarm about the incident, but any action must come from the Board of Regents.
The elected 13-member Board of Regents oversees the state’s eight higher education institutions. The regents are elected by district and elect a chairman and a vice chairman.
