Dean Nancy Uscher is pleased to invite Norma Saldivar as the incoming chair of the department of theatre. Saldivar signs up with UNLV following her work as executive director of the Arts Institute and professor of theatre at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Previously, she functioned as producing director and professor at the exact same organization. She earned her BFA in Theatre-Acting from Illinois Wesleyan University, and her MFA in Theatre-Directing from the University of Illinois.
“We could not be more thrilled with the addition of Teacher Saldivar to our already stellar theatre department and Nevada Conservatory Theatre,” said Uscher. “Her knowledge and knowledge will help continue to shape the department as a leader in the theatrical arts.”
Saldivar will begin in her position July 15.
