Editor’s note: This story previously included comparisons of salaries of current and former Nevada Athletics staff. In the previous story, data was pulled from a different year, which left the conclusions misleading, as they were not up to date.
In documents obtained by the Nevada Sagebrush from the Public Records Office of the University of Nevada, Reno, it is unclear whether the Nevada Athletics office staff prioritizes diversity when hiring.
Currently, among its office staff—including those working in leadership, administration and marketing—83 percent of employees are white. Hispanic, African American, Asian and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander employees altogether account for approximately 15 percent of staff members. One employee is listed as a ‘Nonresident Alien,’ so their ethnicity is unknown.
However, on the other hand, 51 percent of all employees are female. That number jumps to 54 percent on the athletics leadership team.
