More than Philanthropy
Primary CSN Collaborator: Albert Rodriguez, CSN Facilities
Schneider has been a CSN partner since 2000. For years, Schneider has recruited CSN students directly out of the CSN Air Conditioning Center of Excellence programs. Schneider technology keeps CSN buildings safe, heated, cooled, and sustainable through high efficient systems. In 2020 Schneider and CSN won the Project of the Year. Schneider has opened their suite at the Las Vegas T-Mobile arena for donor thank-you events.
In 2019, Schneider made a gift of $100,000 to the Betty Engelstad School of Health Sciences on the CSN Henderson campus. The building will open in Fall 2021 and allow CSN to increase the number of health care professionals graduating into the workforce – now more important than ever.
Chris Collins, VP Systems Transformation, Digital Energy Division, Schneider Electric joined the CSN Foundation board in July 2020.
