Administrative History

The Board of Regents was established by the Nevada State Constitution in 1864, and the first Board was created in 1865. The Board is responsible for the governance of the institutions comprising the Nevada System of Higher Education. The original name of the organization was the University of Nevada System, which was established in 1968. It became the University and Community College System of Nevada (UCCSN) in December 1991. The Board of Regents voted to change the system's name in February 2004. Subsequently, by means of Assembly Bill No. 527, which was adopted by the Nevada legislature and signed by the Governor on May 18, 2005, its name became the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). The Board meets regularly and has additional committee meetings. All regular and committee meetings are open to the public.
