A Special Alumni event
Las Vegas, Raiders, & Harvard College: The Connection
The Harvard Club of Nevada is pleased to launch our new Morning Speakers Series that will feature Inspiring Keynotes, Community Leaders, and Business Innovators. This January, we are excited to announce Dr. Bo Bernhard AB'95 as our inaugural presenter!
In 2013, the NFL refused to even consider playing an exhibition game in Las Vegas because of sports betting.
In 2020, the Raiders will call our great city of Las Vegas home. What changed? What led to this monumental shift in perspective by the NFL? Well, like many transformative events, the narrative begins in a classroom at Harvard college, with a young undergraduate student...
The Harvard Club of Nevada is excited to invite you to a special morning event with Dr. Bo Bernhard AB‘95 (Executive Director, International Gaming Institute, UNLV).
Bo will tell the behind the scenes story of how his studies at Harvard, and ultimately his professional career in academia, led Mark Davis, the Raiders Organization, and the NFL to support the teams relocation. No longer viewing Las Vegas as "Sin City," but rather “Just Win City!”
We hope this event will be an opportunity to re-connect with former classmates, develop new relationships, and hear a unique insight about our home city.

Bo Bernhard, Ph.D (A.B. '95) A 5th generation Nevadan, calls Las Vegas home, but he works frequently in jurisdictions as diverse as South Africa, Australia, Singapore, South Korea, Macao, Mexico, Vietnam, Taiwan, Argentina, Brazil, Russia, Portugal, Austria, Greece, England, and Canada. Dr. Bernhard began his research career at Harvard, where as an undergraduate he completed a double major (sociology and psychology) magna cum laude thesis on the community impacts of the gaming and industry in Nevada. The foundations of this analysis have since been extended worldwide, and by the age of 30, Dr. Bernhard had lectured on his research on six continents.
