|Dear NSHE Community,
We are all deeply saddened by the senseless act of violence that occurred Sunday evening. We are grateful to the many first responders, medical personnel, and caring citizens who have stepped up to offer their assistance. Special thanks to the UNLV and Thomas & Mack staff for selflessly working this morning to ensure evacuees felt safe.
The effects of this tragedy are far-reaching and have undoubtedly impacted our students, staff, and faculty. We grieve with the NSHE and greater Las Vegas community over the loss of life. We are aware of students and staff that are currently seeking medical care and we are keeping them in our thoughts, wishing for a speedy recovery.
NSHE campuses stand ready to assist anyone who has the need to contact loved ones, seek counseling, or would like to volunteer. Additionally, NSHE serves as a community resource and we would like to offer our resources and facilities as our city plans to respond to those in need.
We are pleased to announce Governor Sandoval’s authorization for Administrative Leave for any state government employee to leave work to donate blood this week. Please notify your supervisor of your intention to donate blood. Administrative Leave per NAC 284.589 is leave with pay for up to 2 hours.
Below, you will find helpful links and contact information. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
