CSN Chronicle June 2023

Dear CSN Family,

I hope your summer is off to a great start and that you have found time to reflect, reset and recharge since the conclusion of the spring semester. It was my honor to represent you at the quarterly NSHE Board of Regents meeting earlier this month. In this edition of The Chronicle, you will see many of the major updates from my report as well as highlights of some of our favorite memories of the spring semester.

June marks the midway point in the calendar year. As we head into the Independence Day holiday, I encourage you to reflect on your goals and aspirations for the year and recommit yourself to achieving them. The days will come without fail and each of them brings us closer to the opportunities our future holds. Your future indeed starts here.

It has been over a year now since CSN began remote work and instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic — and what an incredible year it has been. Despite the challenges, we have come together as a team to ensure that our students come first, our CSN Family remains safe, and our community can continue counting on us.

We will see a record-sized graduating class this month, we will see a gradual return to campus for our faculty and staff this summer, and we will see thousands of students in our classrooms this summer and fall. It is an exciting time at CSN.

I could not be more proud of the entire CSN Family for your efforts day in and day out. On behalf of the students who depend on us all, thank you for another successful academic year.

March Chronicle

Three major policy/protocol changes have been announced that may impact student enrollment for fall 2012 semester classes. I would ask that all faculty and staff understand these changes so that we may all work to help students experience a smooth enrollment process and a successful fall semester.

March 16, 2012 | Categories: Blog Monthly Chronicles


Fall 2012 Registration Changes

Early registration begins May 1 and the payment due date for students who register early for fall 2012 classes is June 1. Payment or payment arrangements (whether paying out of pocket or with financial aid) must be made by this deadline or students’ enrollment may be canceled. Registration re-opens for all students on June 4, after which time payment is due at 11:59 p.m. on the day of registration.

The use of this “rolling” enrollment cancellation process will help ensure CSN does not shutdown the entire registration system for all NSHE institutions as we did last fall.

The following steps will help students protect their enrollment from cancelation:

· Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form before May 30;

· Pay the balance due before 11:59 p.m. on June 1; or

· Sign up for a payment plan online via MyCSN and pay the minimum amount due by 11:59 p.m. on June 1, (or do so in person at a campus cashier’s office during regular business hours).

Executive Budget Proposal’s Impact on CSN

This morning’s RJ includes an excellent article by Richard Lake on how the proposed cuts to higher education are calculated, how tuition at four-year institutions might be raised, and other reactions to the governor’s executive budget recommendations. I thought, however, you might like to know more about the impact on CSN.

December Chronicle

Thanks to the tireless work of Drs. Hyla Winters, Patti Castro, Darren Divine, and the faculty in the Ralph & Betty Engelstad School of Health Sciences, CSN received approval from the Board of Regents for two new Bachelor of Applied Science degrees, one in Clinical Laboratory Sciences and the other in Cardio-respiratory Sciences This is great news for our community, which lost the CLS program at UNLV due to funding reductions and the state, which has no other accredited four-year program in cardio-respiratory.

November Chronicle

Last month’s Chronicle described the goals of Complete College America and the Obama Administration’s efforts to fund more certificate and degree completions. Paralleling these initiatives are renewed accountability and public communication activities at the national level. The American Association of Community Colleges is launching a Voluntary Framework of Accountability that will be piloted by three dozen colleges this year. And there are new proposals for better measuring student success in community colleges.

CSN is a Sound Investment for Nevadans

“Worthwhile public projects often generate negative taxpayer perspective returns, because the role of government is to provide services that the public wants but that the business sector may find unprofitable … But unlike most government endeavors funding for CSN generates strong results from both the social and taxpayer perspectives. Economists generally assume a 3% discount rate in analyzing government investments, assuming that governments can obtain unsecured loans at a rate of 3% or receive a 3% return on any excess funds, if they were invested. Since CSN’s taxpayer rate of return of 9.2% is greater than 3%, state and local governments actually make money on the investment. By funding the college, therefore, other recipients of state and local funding are actually subsidized through the revenues generated by the college.”

Special Board of Regents Meeting 2-2-2010

The Board of Regents met at the Charleston campus today to discuss the state’s nearly $900 million budget deficit. We estimate this will mean a 22 percent cut in general fund appropriations to the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). This would mean a statewide cut to Nevada colleges and universities of about $37 million for the remainder of this year and $110 million for next year.

For CSN, we estimate that this would mean a budget reduction of about $6 million this fiscal year and $18 million next year.

December Cabinet Notes

Dr. Richards distributed a report from the University System of Maryland that details its efficiency efforts. The reporting system has been in place in Maryland for five years and has helped greatly with funding requests from the Maryland legislature. The NSHE Board of Regents has placed high priority on each of the Nevada institutions‟ ability to demonstrate similar efforts, and detail those efforts in an efficiencies report. Dr. Richards encouraged the cabinet members to visit the University System of Maryland website to view the reports from previous years.
