Amodei Statement on the Passing of Dr. Joseph Crowley

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) released the below statement today following the passing of the University of Nevada, Reno’s longest-serving President, Dr. Joseph Crowley:

“I first met Dr. Crowley when I was a freshman and he was working as director of the political science department. During his tenure at UNR, Dr. Crowley served as a professor, department chair, and as acting president before eventually becoming president in 1979. Dr. Crowley brought further stature to UNR while serving as president of the NCAA, from 1993 to 1995, during which time he did groundbreaking work on Title IX programs benefitting women athletes. While Dr. Crowley wore many hats at UNR, he always made sure to put the educational needs of Nevadans first, working hard each day to advance the university’s mission to provide ‘outstanding learning, discovery, and engagement programs.’ Without a doubt, Dr. Crowley’s strong leadership and dedication has done great things for UNR and Nevada and he will be greatly missed.”
