Who made the decision to force the departure of UNLV president Len Jessup?

Share this article!

Chancellor Thom Reilly does not have the authority on his own to force a university president to quit or be fired. Only the Board of Regents can make that call.

But the Board has not held any public meeting to discuss Jessup’s job performance. This raises the possibility that some members of the board conferred in private about getting rid of Jessup. Have the regents ever heard of the Open Meeting law? Taking a secret poll of board members to avoid a public discussion is a blatant violation of the spirit and letter of Nevada’s Open meeting law.

Dr. Jessup has been humiliated by the chancellor and the Board of Regents. What do these officials have to say about this disgraceful and secretive maneuver? Nothing.

The regents love the sounds of their own voices. If you have ever attended a board meeting, you’ve heard them jostling for the microphone. Thus far, the regents and the chancellor have no comment about the forced ouster of a widely respected university president.

There is another question to consider. After Jessup is forced to leave, who will take his job? Do they already have someone in mind? If not, the board may have trouble filling the position. What self-respecting education professional in the country would want to sign a contract that might be shredded at any moment, without notice because of the whims of a feckless board of backstabbing regents?

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better? Quest bars cheap fitnesstipsnew1 quest bars

    a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have created some
    nice practices and we are looking to trade strategies with other
    folks, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  10. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!|

  11. I have a WordPress blog and what I need is to rotate my blog posts over and over with a preset time interval. And also I’d like to shuffle my posts. Would RSS feeds pick up the rotated blog posts as new ones? Does someone have this PHP code? Thanks.

  12. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!

  13. Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price? Thank you, I appreciate it!|

  14. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different webpage and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am justfollowing you. Look forward to looking over yourweb page repeatedly.

  15. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the
    easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get irked at the same time as
    people think about issues that they just do not realize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the entire
    thing without having side-effects , other people could take a signal.

    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
