“The faculty of Great Basin College expresses concern about the Board of Regent's closed personnel session last week that led to the Board's decision to re-assign Community College of Southern Nevada President Ron Remington.
Ron Remington has dedicated his career to higher education in Nevada. His accomplishments are found across the state, and his reputation extends beyond its borders. As president of GBC from 1989 until his departure to CCSN in 2001, he gained the respect and admiration of administration, staff, faculty, students and the communities served by the college. Ron Remington proved himself a visionary leader and a man of integrity. He should have an opportunity to respond to the allegations made against him.
The Board's decision to re-assign Remington has a chilling effect on the UCCSN professoriate and academic institutions. However, it also sends the citizens of Nevada the message that elected officials can reach decisions in closed sessions without being required to explain those decisions, even to the people involved.
The faculty of Great Basin College request that the Board of Regents re-consider its decision of Thursday, November 21, 2003, to re-assign Ron Remington to the classroom.”
