Consolidation of higher ed system a power grab

Mar 2, 2016 by

Late last year higher education officials controversially voted to merge campus police at two Reno colleges with the UNR police department.

Then, last month, administrators proposed centralizing the Nevada System of Higher Education’s registration system. At that same meeting, the Board of Regents reaffirmed their vision for a strong, single system to oversee higher education in Nevada.

Now, system officials are considering whether the UNLV police department should take over enforcement duties for the College of Southern Nevada and Nevada State College.

Notice a pattern?

NSHE leaders say consolidating services is a way to stay efficient and save on overhead costs, but critics say it’s a defensive tactic designed to protect against future challenges to the system’s power.
