All rank and file faculty in the Nevada System of Higher Education are invited to attend an open forum with our invited guests, Carol Del Carlo and Stephanie Goodman, to discuss the ramifications of Question 1 which will appear on the November ballot. This is the second forum in a series, following the successful February event with lawmakers who sponsored the legislation leading to Question 1.

Question 1 asks Nevada voters to decide if the Nevada Constitution should be amended to remove the constitutional provisions governing the election and duties of the Board of Regents. The Nevada Faculty Alliance is hosting the forum on May 15 to explore the ramifications of this vote.

Although a similar ballot initiative was narrowly defeated in 2020, there appears to be momentum for Question 1's approval this year. Passage will open the door to redefine how regents are selected and their scope of authority. It will also allow the legislature to assume many responsibilities currently vested in the regents. While the new provisions would provide opportunities for reform, it also poses danger as it may create the possibility for activist lawmakers, like those in Florida and Texas, to mold higher education into an ideological tool.

Faculty engagement and activism will be crucial to help shape a new system into one that honors the fundamental tenets of higher education: faculty and student rights and responsibilities, academic freedom, shared governance, due process, and intellectual honesty.

The forum is open to NSHE rank and file faculty and all NFA members are strongly encouraged to participate.
