RENO, Nev. (AP) - University of Nevada President Marc Johnson says boosting enrollment by 15 percent over the next eight years is the key to generating new resources to hire more faculty and continue recovery from painful state spending cuts in recent years.

Johnson, in the president's annual address to students and faculty on the Reno campus this week, said he appreciates the "great sacrifices" all staff has made to help "preserve a quality university during dark times."

He says the goal is to boost enrollment to 22,000 by 2021. He says officials also intend to hire at least 20 new faculty members in each of the next four years to help lower the university's teacher-student ratio from 21-to-1 to 18-to-1.
