Dr. Milton Glick, 1937-2011

The University of Nevada lost a tireless crusader and great ambassador over the weekend. His unceasing devotion to bettering the University and championing its important place in the state was unmatched, but his personal interactions with the people of northern Nevada will leave the widest impression. He believed in the power of the college experience to transform people for the better, and in keeping graduates connected to their alma mater. Nevada Wolf Pack sports will also miss one of its biggest fans. I'll personally remember Dr. Glick for his warmth, openness and level of energy that belied his age. He always had time to stop and listen to people's concerns wherever he was, and it's this dedication to reaching out and building relationships that we should carry on in his memory. My only regret is that the University and the state couldn't have benefited from his leadership under brighter circumstances. Godspeed, Dr. Glick, and thank you for all of your efforts.
