LAS VEGAS (AP) - UNLV President Neal Smatresk says the university is beginning to make ambitious plans to raise more than $500 million over the next several years for new building projects, which could include the first medical school in southern Nevada and a new on-campus football stadium.

Smatresk says the effort is in the "exploratory" stage, and the university wants to quietly raise 50 percent of the money from donors before launching a high-profile public campaign a few years down the road.

Bill Boldt, UNLV vice president for university of advancement, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://tinyurl.com/jwukmp4 ) that such a campaign would take seven to 10 years.

A similar campaign completed in 2010 raised $537 million for a number projects, including the William S. Boyd School of Law.
