Nevada FIT Program
Nevada FIT Program

Kevin Carman was appointed as the Executive Vice President and Provost at the University of Nevada, Reno, on February 1, 2013.  Dr. Carman oversees the university's eight academic colleges or schools, the Division of Health Sciences, the Graduate School, the Division of Extended Studies, and University Libraries. He also has responsibility for the Office of Research and Innovation and for Information Technology.

Over the last three years, enrollment at the University has increased from 19,000 to > 21,000 students (17,300 undergraduate, 2,900 graduate, 300 M.D., and 500 non-degree seeking), with student diversity increasing each of the last three years (now over 35% under-represented).

With the growth of students, Dr. Carman has implemented bottom-up competitive opportunities for distributing 166 new faculty lines over the past four years.  In addition, several new graduate assistant, administrative staff, and academic-advisor positions have been added.

Shortly after his arrival in 2013, Provost Carman established a five-day academic “boot camp” (NevadaFIT) for incoming freshmen. "NevadaFIT is an intensive academic orientation program at UNR that is designed to help new freshmen be successful in university classes.  For the past several years, Rotary has provided financial assistance to offset the cost of NevadaFIT for students who have financial need.  In 2013, 48 UNR students participated in the initial NevadaFIT program.  Participation has grown each year, and in the fall of 2017 UNR anticipates over 1300 participants.  UNR has made several modifications to the program in order to maximize impact while also containing the cost of running the program.  Carman will describe how NevadaFIT has evolved and give an overview of how NevadaFIT benefits students."
