UNLV forms partnership with Brookings Institution

UNLV officials said today the university has formed a partnership with the Brookings Institution that will bring lectures to campus.

The university will announce more details Tuesday morning, but said today the initiative "will address infrastructure, public policy and quality of life challenges in Las Vegas and the mountain west states."

After releasing more details of the partnership Tuesday, the university will present the inaugural Brookings Scholars lectures, which are free and open to the public. The debut lectures will be from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The first lecture will be titled “How We’re Doing: A Composite Index of Global and National Trends,” will be given by William J. Antholis, managing director of the Brookings Institution.

The second will be “Metropolitan Las Vegas: Challenges, Opportunities, and a Vision,” with Mark Muro, fellow and director of policy of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution; and Robert E. Lang, nonresident senior fellow of Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution.
