RE: NEVADA STATE COLLEGE CONTINUES TO SERVE ITS MISSION
System of Higher Education unanimously reaffirmed its commitment to Nevada State College by approving our budget for fiscal years 2010 and 2011. Nevada State's approved budget does not eliminate any academic programs, nor does it reduce our existing faculty and staff ranks. Rather, our budget plan calls for the continued growth of NSC with increased admissions for both first-time and transfer students.
Nevada State College is the state's only public, comprehensive baccalaureate institution. We offer 25 degree programs and pride ourselves on small classes and individual attention. Nevada State's mission is to educate the next generation of professionals for the State of Nevada, with a particular emphasis on underrepresented, first-generation, and low-income students. NSC is the lowest cost option in Nevada for a bachelor's degree.
On May 8th, Nevada State College will celebrate its 7th Spring Commencement at which time this institution will award its 1,000th degree. We are pleased that so many students have come through our doors, have successfully completed their programs, and our now working in our local economy. Our graduates come highly recommended in many fields.
NSC is successfully fulfilling the need for which it was created: providing a high quality, affordable educational opportunity for the citizens of Nevada.
