UNLV removes Hey Reb! statue following student protests

Published Wed Jun 17 2020 17:36:59 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas has removed a statue of its “Hey Reb!” mascot from in front of its alumni center following outcry from student groups, including the Native American Student Association. The bronze statue was in front of the Tam Alumni Center and is expected to be returned to its donors. The statue was criticized for its relationship to the Confederacy. The decision to remove the statue came weeks after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. University President Marta Meana says she has had conversations with individuals and stakeholders about how the university can move forward in light of recent events.
