After six-plus years heading the UNLV Alumni Association, Jim Ratigan '78
will be retiring as of June 30, 2017
. Jim, a UNLV alumnus and current executive director for the Alumni Association, returned to UNLV in 2010 after a successful business career to head the alumni engagement team. He previously served for decades as a volunteer, notably as a member and former president of the UNLV Alumni Association board of directors.
Under Jim's leadership, the Alumni Association created new membership and networking programs, including the launch of the Rebel Business Network, UNLVIP membership program, the Alumni Association mobile app, and UNLV Connect.
