Overview

About Nevada State College
Founded in 2002, NSC is a four-year public college located on a developing 500-acre campus in the foothills of Henderson, Nevada (adjacent to Las Vegas). Our faculty and staff members enjoy the rare opportunity to mold the college as it continues to grow into a cornerstone of higher education in Southern Nevada. NSC emphasizes high-quality instruction, exemplary student support, evidence-based practices, and innovation as a means to more efficient, effective outcomes in all departments across campus.

NSC currently serves 4,000+ students who are highly diverse and largely underserved-a majority of our students are first generation, racial/ethnic minorities. We seek applicants who are passionate about working with this promising student population and collaborating with faculty and staff across departments to make a lasting impact in developing our young institution.

At Nevada State College, we celebrate the storied backgrounds of our campus community. We operate with a shared commitment to represent and serve the diverse population of Nevada and to encourage the exchange of ideas that respects and honors the lived experiences of our students, staff, and faculty. We foster a culture of inclusive excellence so our members can live authentically, fully engage, and flourish. In order to strengthen the college and progress its mission, the college dedicates itself to intentional and ongoing reflection to meeting the evolving needs of NSC, the surrounding communities, and the State of Nevada. We are committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly urge women and minorities to apply.

Our School of Education (SOE) is an exciting place to be. More than 600 undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students are pursuing licensure programs in elementary, special, & secondary education as well as speech-language pathology. In response to a statewide shortage of K-12 educators, NSC has made a strong commitment to building out the School of Education (SOE). New academic programs will be added and exciting new initiatives launched. As a part of this, the SOE is currently planning for a master’s degree in speech-language pathology which will be the first master’s degree offered at NSC!
