Las Vegas Review-Journal: University removes engineering dean

College chief was critical of UNLV’s plans to eliminate programs

The dean of UNLV’s College of Engineering, whose programs are expected to be among the hardest hit in the next round of budget cuts, has been removed from his job and reassigned to the provost’s office, the university confirmed Monday.

Eric Sandgren took over as dean of the college in 2003. His contract, which pays him $193,596 a year, expires in June.
