GVC to fund gaming and regulatory online courses through UNLV
GVC Holdings’ non-profit arm, GVC Foundation US, has announced a gift of $256,000 (£193,550/€216,749) to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), to help develop online industry training programmes led by legal gaming scholars and executives.
The funds will be used by the university’s William S. Boyd School of Law to create programmes aimed at operators, regulators, lawyers, and others who work in and around the gaming industry.
Classes will launch during the first and second quarters of 2021, and will be created and taught by instructors with a long history of experience in gaming.
The initial courses will include an introduction to gaming law and regulation; introduction to gaming operations; the legal and operational environment for sports betting; player accountability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) in gaming law; and public policy and comparative study of gaming laws and regulation.
“UNLV Boyd is located in the international capital of gaming and we are delighted to create this program open to all,” said Daniel W. Hamilton, dean of the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law.
“Thanks to a gift from the GVC Foundation, gaming professionals around the globe can learn from those who are engaged in cutting-edge research on gaming and regulation.”
GVC’s involvement with the online course was announced today, alongside a number of changes to the membership of its board committees.
