Business leaders, acting UNLV president want school to become Tier 1

LAS VEGAS -- Acting UNLV President Don Snyder addressed a group of business leaders from the Metro Chamber about his plans for the university's future.

The main topic of Wednesday's event was transforming the school to a Tier 1 Carnegie research status. Tier 1 schools are considered more prestigious, giving the university the ability to get more funding for research.

Snyder says making a UNLV a Tier 1 school would be a big boost to the local economy.
