You have the ability to change the lives of College of Southern Nevada students. Many of you made a difference through your philanthropy and advocacy. Your gifts and your voices lift CSN student success to new heights.

The College of Southern Nevada (CSN) is the largest post-secondary institution in Nevada, with a majority-minority student body and many students who are the first in their family to graduate from high school and enter college. At CSN our mission is student success and our core expectation is that our students graduate, complete, transfer, and prosper.
