The UNLV newspaper "The Rebel Yell" has a brief note today that UNLV's dean of liberal arts, Ed Shoben, was forced out of his position today. I haven't had the opportunity to work directly with Dean Shoben but I have worked with his wife Professor Shoben who is an outstanding educator and just plain brilliant. From what little I know of Dean Shoben it is hard to imagine what could possibly have caused this situation. I hope it can be worked out shortly as I'm quite certain UNLV will be stronger if we keep a good dean.
