The College of Southern Nevada has another record number of graduates to cap off its 50th academic year
The College of Southern Nevada will graduate its largest class ever at its 50th annual commencement ceremony on May 16 at the Thomas & Mack Center.
A record 4,298 graduates are eligible to receive their degrees and certificates, according to preliminary data. Official numbers for spring 2022 will be available once grades are final. In the last decade, CSN has seen more than 25,000 students earn their degrees and certificates and go on to fuel the growth and diversification of the Southern Nevada economy.
We are excited to welcome Gov. Steve Sisolak, who will join college officials, Student Commencement Speaker Kesha Westbrooks, CSN Professor Emerita Barbara Agonia, a founding faculty of the College, and a video message from U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, in addressing the graduates.
More than one-third of the students in this year’s graduating class is the first in their families to earn a college degree. In addition, one-third of the graduates are Hispanic. More than 90 percent of CSN’s graduates remain in Nevada after graduation, electing to either continue their education by transferring to a four-year institution or join the workforce and fuel the region’s economy.
Media are invited to attend the ceremony. Interviews with college officials and outstanding graduates are available. See page 2 for graduating students. To coordinate interviews, please email email@example.com.
