Statement on the passing of Dr. Joseph N. Crowley

“The NSHE community is profoundly saddened today to learn of the passing of Dr. Joe Crowley, an icon to not only the University of Nevada, Reno, but our state’s entire education community. His extraordinary ability to work with his fellow institution presidents and the Nevada Legislature are a testament to the positive impact he has had on our state’s overall public education system. As the university’s longest-serving president, Joe built a remarkable foundation for UNR, and his legacy will continue to positively influence students for generations to come. Our thoughts are with Dr. Crowley’s family and friends. We have all lost a remarkable leader and educator.”
