CSN President Federico Zaragoza’s Statement on the Passing of NSHE Regent Sam Lieberman

The entire CSN Family grieves with Regent Lieberman’s family, friends and loved ones. He was a true friend to CSN and all the region’s college students, having been involved in shaping policy since his time as an active UNLV student, volunteer and donor in the 1980s. He was first elected to the Board in 2015, and later said, “Joining the Board of Regents was simply the next phase of my three-decade love affair with Nevada higher education.”

No one believed more in the power of higher education that Regent Lieberman did. He will be sorely missed, not only by those involved in higher education, but by all Nevadans. He was truly a champion for our state who believed, as we do, that we should always put Students First.
