I’ve met Dr. Len Jessup, the new president of UNLV, on several occasions and have also had the pleasure of hearing him speak publicly. He brings a wealth of experience to us from his position as dean of the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona, where he taught courses in entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership, and was a leading researcher in management information systems.
Dr. Jessup appears to be a mature leader who focuses first on the student experience, and works backwards from there to create strategies to improve the university. He also recognizes the need to partner with the business community to help UNLV reach its goals. I’m confident he’ll take a leadership role in supporting the university’s Tier One Initiative and its drive to establish a UNLV School of Medicine.
I applaud the Board of Regents’ selection of Dr. Jessup. From my perspective, he appears to be a leader with the skills, compassion and energy to carry the university to bigger and better things. Nevada State Bank has supported UNLV for many years, and we’ll continue our commitment to the university and its new president.
