Sheila Bray

University of Nevada, Las Vegas College of Education
Director of Strategic Engagement
Las Vegas, NV
I am currently the Director of Strategic Engagement and Special Assistant to the Dean in the College of Education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In this position, I lead a team of professionals to best align efforts in student recruitment and engagement, alumni engagement, donor development, communication and branding, and large college-wide events in ways that best advance the college and reinforce our vision.

As a Higher Education professional for over 15 years, I have a deep passion for the varied work and mission of universities, both what they provide for the students, faculty, staff, and community they serve, but also the opportunities for universities to be agents of change in sculpting the future.
I am interested in effective strategies to build community partnerships, increase faculty interest and buy-in, and leverage these partnerships for broader gains for your entire college/university, rather than for only individual research interests. I'm looking forward to connecting and strategy building on these and many other topics!
