LAS VEGAS -- The Board of Regents approved former president of Boyd Gaming Corp., Don Snyder, as the acting president of UNLV.

The board made the decision Friday with all but two board members voting yes. Those two members abstained from the vote.

Nevada System of Higher Education Chancellor Dan Klaich recommended Snyder. An acting president is not eligible to apply for a permanent position.

In a letter to the board, Klaich said of Snyder, "His close ties to the business community and the philanthropic community will send a message to those groups how important they are to UNLV's success. Mr. Snyder brings a lifetime of credibility, integrity and success with both. Importantly, he will be able to give the new president an immediate entree to these critical stakeholders who will so influence our future and our success."

UNLV President Neal Smatresk is the new president at the University of North Texas.
