The College of Southern Nevada strives to place diversity as an overarching principle and accreditation theme that impacts every area of our institution. Moreover, we make it a priority to continually plan and establish CSN’s identity, ensuring it remains consistent with our values as a whole.
Our office is part of the President’s Office and works closely with all levels of the administration, staff and faculty to achieve its mission, vision and goals.
CSN has nine faculty/staff diversity committees which work to promote a campus culture of awareness and inclusion through events and advocacy. The committees welcome all individuals interested in learning and supporting their respective communities.
Refer to our CSN Diversity & Multicultural Affairs page for a list of committees.
