It appears the University of Nevada Las Vegas’s president is not on his way out just yet.
Tuesday, Nevada System of Higher Education Chancellor Thom Reilly announced he will release a performance report about UNLV President Len Jessup.
But a hearing on his performance won’t happen until this fall.
Reilly also announced that he and Jessup are taking steps to hire a Chief Operating Officer to address concerns brought up by NSHE board of regents.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Reilly had asked Jessup to resign or be fired.
Top donors to the university however pushed back. The Engelstad Family Foundation said it would pull a multi-million dollar donation to the new UNLV medical school if Jessup was pushed out.
