This undated official portrait provided by the Nevada System of Higher Education shows new chancellor Melody Rose. The new head of Nevada's university system says she's no "ivory tower academic," and thinks being the daughter of a teenage mother and a father who struggled with addiction makes her a lot like the 100,000 students in the Silver State's higher education system. Rose began Sept. 1, 2020 as chancellor of the Nevada System of Higher Education with 25 years of experience in higher education, including as chancellor of the Oregon university system.
