UNR Dean to Join Chancellor's Senior Staff

Reno, Nevada / June 9, 2006 -- Dr. Mike Reed, dean of the University of Nevada, Reno College of Business Administration, was named today as the vice chancellor of finance and administration for the Nevada System of Higher Education.

I’m extremely pleased to have Mike join our staff,” said Chancellor James E. Rogers who made the announcement at the end of a two-day Board of Regents meeting. “In the two years I’ve been with the NSHE, I’ve perhaps spent more time with Mike and have come to respect his intelligence, experience, and extraordinary involvement in the community.”

Reed will start July 1 in the Reno System Administration office with an annual salary of $189,000.

A member of the UNR economics faculty since 1972, Reed served as chairman of the economics department from 1983-1992. From 1992-1993, he served as the acting dean of the College of Business Administration and has held the position of dean since 1993.

“We want people to appreciate the value of the education our students receive and the value of the NSHE to build what Nevada’s going to be,” said Reed.

Reed earned a B.A. in economics from San Jose State College in 1968 and his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Utah in 1975.
