WHERE: Lawlor Events Center
WHEN: 8:30-9:30 p.m., Monday, April 18
“It is with great sorrow and sadness that students mourn the passing of University President, Dr. Milton
Glick. More than anything, we knew him as a dedicated colleague, advocate for students and a friend. Dr.
Glick was a great leader who never faltered to support student involvement in decision making at this
University. Students will remember Dr. Glick as being a dedicated educator, leader and friend. His
commitment to students was matched only by his kindness. His kindhearted nature brought students into
his home to celebrate every December for a student holiday party. He was always willing to meet with
students to hear our thoughts on issues facing the University and the community. We will always
remember seeing him on campus shaking hands with students and genuinely caring about their
education. He was a great leader and friend and will be missed by many for years to come.”
The Associated Students of the University of Nevada and the Graduate Student Association will have a
candlelight vigil to remember Dr. Glick. All community members are welcome and encouraged to attend
this non-denominational event.
