Milton D. Glick, president of the University of Nevada at Reno, died suddenly Saturday night after suffering a stroke, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported. Glick had been president at Reno since 2006, and faced a series of deep budget cuts from the state, but still pushed for improvements in the student experience at the university. The university is currently facing a new round of cuts. Previously, he was provost at Arizona State University.
The Associated Students of the University of Nevada issued a statement Sunday night that said in part: "Dr. Glick was a great leader who never faltered to support student involvement in decision making at this university. Students will remember Dr. Glick as being a dedicated educator, leader and friend. His commitment to students was matched only by his kindness. His kindhearted nature brought students into his home to celebrate every December for a student holiday party. He was always willing to meet with students to hear our thoughts on issues facing the university and the community."
