Preparing our state's K-12 students for the rigors of a college education through Nevada's adoption of the Common Core State Standards (also known as the Nevada Academic Content Standards) is a top priority for NSHE and our partners in the Nevada Department of Education and Nevada Board of Education. They have launched a new initiative, Nevada Ready!, to raise awareness of our state's public school standards. We are in full support of these standards that will increase our students' knowledge to be college and career ready.

Sam Lieberman, NSHE Board of RegentsSam Lieberman has been a longtime champion of higher education for over three decades in Nevada. A 1996 graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in Social Work, Regent Lieberman has committed himself to our university and community college system both as a student and an active alumnus.

Why do you want to serve on the Board of Regents?

Lieberman: I’ve been a student of the Board of Regents for a long time. I attended my first Board meeting as a student government representative in the early 80s and that experience felt like a natural path of what I wanted to do with my life.
