The Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents approved Marc Johnson as the new President of UNR today. Here’s a timeline of events from when he was first recommended to when the Regents made their decision.
Yesterday, the search committee for the next UNR President recommended Marc Johnson to the BoR. Here’s how the story broke:
The regents have just voted to recommend Marc Johnson to be the next President of UNR.
At 3:23, Student Health Center Director Cheryl Hug-English sent out an email saying that any rumors about the outbreak didn’t appear to have a factual basis. However, she did say that about 75-100 students had checked into the health center for STD testing. It is free STD testing week, after all.

Alright, so in the last few days we’ve been hearing rumors about an HIV outbreak in the dorms at UNR. One of our reporters called up Jerome Maese, the director of residential life, and he said he has been getting phone calls about it, but can’t confirm it’s true. Anybody with information about this please privately message me.
Also, if anyone knows why Mike Ball was booted from the Nevada Wolf Pack football team please private inbox me.
At this point, several Nevada Sagebrush reporters began to look into the matter. Reporters sent out tweets and posted in an open Facebook group. Most people didn’t see the addition of “unproven” or “possible,” and began to assume that an actual outbreak had taken place.
My prayers go out to the students from UNR who recently found out they are infected with HIV. Its going to be ok, its not the end.
