Associate Dean Pindell Selected for UNLV Leadership Development Academy

It was recently announced that Boyd’s Associate Dean of Academic Affairs Ngai Pindell was selected as a member of the inaugural class of UNLV Leadership Development Academy Fellows. Pindell is joined by six other UNLV faculty members.

Under Provost John Valery White, the Leadership Development Academy aims to identify and develop campus leaders who are capable of guiding the University toward its identified goals.

The Leadership Development Academy consists of two components: four to six seminars per semester related to prominent higher education issues and UNLV-specific challenges as well as an administrative placement involving direct contact with a senior administrator.

The Fellows were selected based on personal statements and curricula vitae or résumés that reflect a high level of scholarship and/or strong potential for higher-level leadership.

Originally, the committee anticipated selecting a total of five Fellows; however, the strong pool of applications resulted in the committee’s decision to select seven Fellows instead.

Dean Pindell was also recently named to the Lawyers of Color 50 Under 50 list. The list is a comprehensive catalog of minority law professors making an impact in legal education.
