Good News About CSN

Here’s good news about the College of Southern Nevada:

  1. The CSN honor society, Phi Theta Kappa, is one of the largest in the nation with more than 500 members.

  1. CSN trains a third of the nurses in the state.

  1. The CSN Culinary Team has represented Nevada at the Western Regional competition for over 15 years.

  1. CSN has the only slot technology program in the nation to train students to maintain and install the most popular gaming machines in Nevada.
If I gave you a list of 100 groups that support higher education, which group would come in last at number 100?  You’ll be surprised to learn it is the faculties at all the Nevada higher education colleges.  Two faculty members told me, “It is our job to teach—not to persuade the public, the governor, or the legislature to give us more money.”  If not their job, then why is it my job?
