The chancellor of the Nevada System of Higher Education, whose own term is due to end this month, recommended to the system's regents Tuesday that they fire David Ashley, president of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. The letter from Chancellor James E. Rogers to the members of the Board of Regents, recommended that "Dr. Ashley's contract not be renewed and that you consider immediate termination of the contract as president.... [T]he problems that have become the subject of much media attention recently are the problems that I long ago asked him and expected him to correct." Ashley's performance has been the subject of significant news coverage and he returned from a trip to Singapore last week amid rumors that he would resign.
