Jacob Solis

Student Reporter

Jacob is a senior at the University of Nevada, Reno studying journalism and political science. Before coming to KUNR in the fall of 2017, Jacob worked for KNPR as a reporter covering Nevada’s 2017 legislative session in Carson City. He has also been a writer and editor for UNR’s student-run newspaper, The Nevada Sagebrush, since 2014.

A Las Vegas native, Jacob is a long-time super-fan of all things public radio. When he’s not out covering stories, he’ll spend his free time catching up on a book, compulsively listening to podcasts, bingeing Veep and learning how not to cook so badly.

Ever since a University of Nevada, Reno student was pictured at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month, the university has been putting extra effort into touting its diversity. But behind the scenes, concerns are brewing that the administration’s diversity efforts are not as robust as they may seem.

And, as Jacob Solis reports, a very public resignation is shining a spotlight on internal divisions.
