As UNLV enters the last year of a seven-year $500 million fundraising
campaign, two people on campus have an extra incentive to help ensure the
university reaches its goal.
The campaign's success will be one of the objectives that Bill Boldt, vice
president for advancement, must achieve to get his hands on a $25,000
And former President Carol Harter stands to earn an extra $250,000 if the
school hits the $500 million mark. Harter serves as executive director of
the Black Mountain Institute, a literary think tank at UNLV that depends
largely on private donations.
As of the end of last September, UNLV had raised $378.8 million. The school
is expected to release updated fundraising figures this month.
