The next president of UNR will need to articulate a vision for a coherent transition between the disruptive changes that have recently occurred and the
changes that will continue to be made to ready the institution for the next decades. That vision will need to be based on a workable mechanism for
incorporating the ideas and creativity of the faculty who we hope to retain and attract over the next decades. I’d like to see a suite of candidates who
very clearly appreciate new vigor and ideas, while having strong managerial experience to maneuver through institutional change that blends the old with
the new. The new president will need to articulate and implement a balance between recognizing and rewarding productivity in terms of innovation as
well as traditional measures of disciplinary academic productivity.

simply because “that is the way that they have always been done.” I’ll be looking for a search process that encourages candidates who have the energy,
intellect and modesty to mobilize the faculty and staff at UNR and in the broader community to move it to the best place it can be for Nevada.

devices, and with passion and feeling. We are at a critical juncture in our University’s history, and I believe it is imperative that our institution selects a
leader who is in tune with the special sense of teamwork and collaboration that characterizes our life on campus. In addition, we must find a leader who
has a clear vision for our future, while embodying the values of this special place. I care deeply about our University. I’ve worked on this campus, more or
less, for more than a decade now, and I believe I have established a reputation for being an honest, ethical, compassionate and collaborative professional.

leader who can literally rally the troops on the ground, mentor his/her teams, solicit and respect the diversity of voices, partner with the Chancellor and
Regents on tough issues statewide, and inspire us all with excellence — personally, academically and professionally. I believe our next President will need
to have these core values and competencies as the University continues to grow its constituent base, honor its students, faculty and staff, and strengthen
its partnerships at all levels. No small task, but the University is accomplishing great things, even in times of deep challenges. I know we can find just the
leader to carry us forward from here.
