Professor Sylvia Lazos a Guest on Jim Rogers' Nevada

Sylvia Lazos is the Justice Myron Leavitt Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On March 13, she was featured on KSNV News 3's program Jim Rogers' Nevada

In regard to the low graduation rate in Nevada's higher education system, Professor Lazos said, "One way to cure it started with the last legislative session and that is to provide a new funding formula where you actually are going to get community colleges more support. I think the other piece of it might be that we have to break community colleges from the higher education system and have local governance, perhaps not elected, ... but appointed jointly by the Governor and the Legislature so there's more close monitoring of what's happening in the community colleges."

Professor Lazos is a frequent op-ed contributor, and her expertise is sought by print and broadcast media on a wide range of subjects, including higher education, immigration, race relations, government, voting and initiatives.
