Mark your calendars for February 9th for the Honors College's 60th Anniversary!

The Honors College invites you to our 60th Anniversary Celebration!

Keynote speaker: Bob Davidson - The Politicization of Science
February 9th, 6:30 pm, at Joe Crowley Student Union.
RSVP here: https://bit.ly/3vRGmM2

Bob Davidson is a philanthropist, founder of the Davidson Academy on the University of Nevada, Reno campus, and award-winning author of "Genius Denied: How to Stop Wasting our Brightest Young Minds"

In 1982, the Davidsons founded Davidson & Associates, the educational software company that published the award-winning products Math Blasterโ„ข and Reading Blasterโ„ข.

In 1989, Bob Davidson left his job as executive vice president of engineering and construction at Parsons Corporation, an international engineering and construction company, to become chairman and CEO of Davidson & Associates. During the next few years, Davidson & Associates formed partnerships with Fisher-Price and Simon & Schuster, and made several strategic acquisitions, including Blizzard Entertainment, a small entertainment software developer whose products Warcraftโ„ข, Starcraftโ„ข, and Diabloโ„ข became runaway best sellers. Under Bobโ€™s leadership, Davidson & Associates became a publicly-traded, multi-million-dollar company.

After selling Davidson & Associates in 1997, the Davidsons decided to focus on philanthropic endeavors to help young people become successful learners. While researching ways to make a positive impact, they realized that our nationโ€™s brightest students are arguably the most underserved and neglected in Americaโ€™s educational system.

In 1999, philanthropist Bob Davidson created a nonprofit operating foundation, the Davidson Institute for Talent Development, whose mission is to recognize, nurture and support profoundly intelligent young people and provide opportunities to develop their talents to make a positive difference.

In 2004, Simon & Schuster published the Davidsonsโ€™ award-winning book, "Genius Denied: How to Stop Wasting Our Brightest Young Minds." In 2005, Davidson Academy supporters worked to pass Nevada state legislation to open a new model for public school for profoundly gifted middle and high school students on the University of Nevada, Reno campus, called the Davidson Academy.

Bob earned his juris doctorate degree from George Washington University, a masterโ€™s in business administration from the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA), and a bachelorโ€™s of science in chemical engineering from Purdue University. He also received an honorary doctorate from the University of Nevada, Reno in May 2010, honoring him for the many contributions he has made to Nevada and the nation. Bob served as a director for both Pepperdine University and George Washington University. Currently, he serves on the advisory board for the Belin-Blank Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development and has served on the Board of Regents for the Nevada System of Higher Education.

See you there!

Go Pack!

โ€œI grew up behind the Iron Curtain in a town that was formerly called Stalin-City, [and] it was a rather sheltered environment. So, the only way was really an athletic scholarship to come and study in the U.S.โ€

In this 10th episode of โ€œSagebrushers,โ€ I talked with Dr. Mariann Vaczi, an assistant professor of Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. She shares her journey from Hungary to the U.S. playing basketball, her passion for Basque culture and her research endeavors as a sports anthropologist, including studying the Basque pelota game and releasing her newest book on human tower building in Catalonia, Spain.
