Posters Found at the CSN Henderson Campus

Dear CSN Family,

This is to inform you that several posters were placed this week on CSN and NSC bulletin boards that expressed a message contrary to the values of inclusion and cultural diversity that we celebrate at CSN. While CSN respects the right of free expression, we must follow posting rules which are guided by the NSHE policy on Freedom of Expression. This policy embraces the principles of free expression while also encouraging inclusivity, diversity and critical thinking. As a result, these bulletins were removed.

In the spirit of diversity and inclusion, I would like to remind the CSN family that in the coming weeks CSN will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and host several events surrounding Black History Month. I hope you will join us.

Thank you for all you do for our students.

Federico

Information on Multi-Campus Reorganizations

The CSN Counselors
I am pleased to authorize the consensus recommendations of the Counseling Department, Faculty Senate, Executive Council, and Campus Vice Presidents and Provosts to proceed with the permanent transition of the CSN Counseling Department and policy amendment for a permanent chair.

Per the October 11 and November 8, 2019 Faculty Senate endorsements, the counselors are permanently transitioning to the multi-campus structure and reporting to the Charleston Campus Vice President and Provost in coordination with the vice presidents and provosts on the Henderson and North Las Vegas campuses, providing daily campus administrative support. In alignment with the multi-campus plan, CSN counselors are moving from a model that promotes access to enrollment to one that supports access to completion.

The counselors will assume a leadership role in providing wraparound support and retention services aligned with Areas of Study and Student Union one-stop student success service center (suite 127). The relocations of four counselors at Charleston will free faculty offices spaces in Building E (2), Building H (1), and Building B (1). Kudos to the Counseling Department and new leadership.

  • Valerie Conner, Interim Department Chair at Charleston Campus
  • Shawn Claxton, Charleston Campus Program Lead
  • Luis Ortega, Henderson Campus Program Lead
  • Amy Palmer, Henderson Campus Early Alert Program Developer
  • Esther Pla-Cazares, North Las Vegas Campus Program Lead

Campus Student Life Coordinators and Administrative Support
With a focus on increasing student engagement and integrating support services, the campus student life coordinators and their administrative support staff will be permanently moved under the multi-campus structure. The campus student life coordinators and student union managers will serve as the primary administrators within the student unions in coordination with the vice presidents and provosts on the Charleston, Henderson and North Las Vegas campuses. Please join me in congratulating and supporting the Campus Student Life staff in their transition.

  • Charleston Campus – Racquel Melson, Campus Life Coordinator, and Juanita Sowell Administrative Assistant
  • North Las Vegas Campus – Sean Tory, Campus Student Life Coordinator, and Shakira Chesebro Administrative Assistant
  • Henderson Campus – Marissa Robledo, Campus Student Life Coordinator, and TBD Administrative Assistant

Dental Faculty Practice
In consultation with the Nevada Board of Dental Examiners Director, Deborah Schaffer and supported by the Faculty Senate, the CSN Dental Faculty Practice has realigned under the college multi-campus structure reporting to the Charleston Campus Vice President and Provost.

Dr. Margo Martin as Vice President of Academic Affairs will serve as the administrator for the Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting Programs. Janice Glasper, interim Dean of Health Sciences will have dual reporting and provide academic leadership for the DFP and Dental Hygiene and Dental Assistant programs. Drs. Martin and Pearson will work in coordination with Dean Glasper to maintain clinical options for the Dental Hygiene and Dental Assistant students. Dr. Widdison will continue as the Dental Director and administrator over day-to-day operations of the DFP services.

Service Area Administration
The Campus Vice Presidents and Provosts have assumed administrative oversight for the CSN sites. The Campus Vice Presidents and Provosts will continue to work with the Program Administrators and staff to support the operations. The service areas align as follows:

VP/Provost Pearson, Charleston Service Area
Summerlin High Tech Center
Sahara West Facility
Western High Tech Center

VP/Provost Charlton, Henderson Service Area
Green Valley High Tech Center
Boulder City
Laughlin
Southwest Las Vegas
Water Street Center Operations

VP/Provost Cota, North Las Vegas Service Area
Nellis Air Force Base
Mesquite and Moapa
CSN community, we have reached another important turning point in our planning and Shared Governance process. Thank you to everyone who has supported this important work.

CSN Statement on the Passing of CSN President Emeritus Dr. Paul E. Meacham

CSN President Emeritus Dr. Paul E. Meacham

December 9, 2019 – College of Southern Nevada president Dr. Federico Zaragoza released the following statement today on the passing of former CSN president Dr. Paul E. Meacham:

“The entire CSN family wishes to express our deepest condolences to Dr. Meacham’s family,” Zaragoza said. “Dr. Meacham was a giant in CSN’s past who changed the lives of thousands of college students. His legacy will continue to shape the college and the state of Nevada for generations to come.”

Meacham was CSN’s longest serving president and its first African American president, overseeing the college at a time of tremendous growth. He spearheaded the effort to build the much-needed Charleston campus, now the college’s largest campus.

Meacham was born in rural Alabama in 1936. He worked his way up to prominence on the national higher education stage. After many years as a college and high school band director, he served in executive positions in the Dallas County Community College District and in the Austin, Texas Community College System.

In 1983, he was named the fourth president of what was then Clark County Community College, which later became the Community College of Southern Nevada during his tenure, and later still the College of Southern Nevada. Dr. Meacham served as the college’s president until 1994, to this day the longest tenure of any leader at the state’s largest higher education institution.

After leaving CSN, Dr. Meacham spent another nine years in higher education as a tenured professor at UNLV.  He was later named a professor emeritus at UNLV and president emeritus at CSN.

In 2015, CSN named the student services building on the Charleston Campus the Paul E. Meacham Student Services Building in honor of his steadfast dedication to the college and its students.

A viewing is scheduled for 3-7 p.m. Sunday, December 15 at Davis Funeral Home, 6200 South Eastern Avenue, and a memorial service is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, December 19 at Mountain View Presbyterian Church, 8601 Del Webb Blvd.

CSN December Chronicle

December Chronicle

As the end of the semester and the end of the year quickly approach, I want to wish you all a very happy holiday season. I hope you will join us at the CSN Holiday Party on December 12. I also want to acknowledge the hard work you put in every day to make sure our students always come first. On behalf of all 35,000 of them, I thank you.

Federico

Mariachi Plata

I am thrilled to invite you to the debut local performance of Mariachi Plata, CSN’s new competitive mariachi! Mariachi Plata is comprised of students from our mariachi courses in the fine arts music curriculum. Their local debut at 7 p.m. December 10 will follow their first competition at the Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza in San Antonio, Texas. This is incredibly exciting for our students and for our community. There is much interest in mariachi in Southern Nevada, as well as a strong desire by members of the Hispanic community for programs that recognize and celebrate their cultural heritage. With nearly one-third of our students identifying as Hispanic, it is imperative that we ensure a good fit for them at CSN.

Popular local singer Napoleon Buenrostro will act as master of ceremonies at the concert, where several other act will perform along with Mariachi Plata. The reception starts at 6 p.m. and the concert at 7.

Holiday Party & Holiday Card Winner

I am very much looking forward to this year’s CSN Holiday Party, and I hope to see you there. Tickets are $10 each and are on sale now through Monday, December 9 at any of our campus cashier’s offices. You may purchase a ticket for yourself and a ticket for a guest; adults only please, as there will be alcoholic beverages available.

On a related note, congratulations to CSN student Cecilia Belio, winner of our holiday card contest! Her wonderful design was chosen by our judges as the winner of the inaugural CSN Holiday Card Contest. Cecilia will be awarded a $500 gift card.

Mexican University Partnership

I recently met with presidents of technical colleges from Mexico and toured CSN’s campuses with them as they learned about some of our specialty programs. We signed a memorandum of understanding with the delegation of college presidents from the Associacion Nacional de Universidades Tecnologicas, pledging to continue the cross-cultural partnership we have developed. We are just getting started, and hope to soon develop new programs and initiatives that will lead to opportunities for our students to interact with the students from Mexico, who will come to CSN. This is a very exciting time for our college. Read more about the partnership here.

New International Center Director

Please join me in welcoming to CSN our new Director of International Programs Carol P. Fimmen, who started last month. Fimmen will be responsible for helping strengthen the college’s international programs, internationalization of the curriculum, faculty development initiatives, development of partnerships with international institutions, organizations and governments, and will oversee the area of international student recruitment and international student services. She plans to establish an international student alumni association, develop new study abroad opportunities for our students and faculty, establish international exchanges for students and faculty, and develop new international and workforce training for institutional and governments.

She brings extensive experience to CSN, having served in many international organizations and on boards, and as a consultant to the Asian Development Bank Institute, the American Council on Education, and the Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration, among others. Welcome to CSN, Carol.

New Chief Human Resources Officer

Another wonderful addition to the CSN family is our new Chief Human Resources Officer Tracey Cleveland, who brings with her more than 20 years of human resources experience, both in higher education and private industry.

She joins us directly from Erie Community College, where she had been since 2014, most recently as the vice president of human resources. Like CSN, ECC is a large community college, offering nearly 100 degree and certificate programs and enrolling more than 10,000 students. Before joining ECC, Cleveland filled various human resources leadership roles at Avery Dennison Corporation, Alcoa, the New York State Department of Transportation and Monroe Community College

As a senior associate vice president, Cleveland will oversee all aspects of human resources including talent acquisition and management, compensation, benefits, wellness, employee relations, employee development and retention, and performance management. She will also be responsible for oversight for the Office of Institutional Equity.

Cleveland begins January 2, and I hope you will join me in welcoming her.

Nevada Promise Needs Mentors

Our Nevada Promise students need you. As you know, students who receive the Nevada Promise scholarship are required to periodically meet with a mentor. Many CSN faculty and staff have been gracious enough to volunteer to mentor students, and for that we are grateful. More mentors are needed, though. If you can, please volunteer by filling out a mentor application here. Thank you.

Voicemail Changes

I hope you saw the email from our Office of Technology Services announcing several important changes to our voicemail system. For a full list of instructions, visit here.

CSN November Chronicle

November 2019 Chronicle

Many in the CSN family have been looking forward the official Student Union grand openings. It was truly an honor to stand with Dr. Arnold Bell, Faculty Senate Chair, the three past student government presidents Daniel Rodriguez, Andrew Sierra and Jill Robinson on October 29, and our new Charleston Campus Vice President and Provost Sonya Pearson for the ribbon cutting ceremony. Truly a “Students First” event.

November is also a time of reflection as we celebrate Thanksgiving, Veterans Day and Native American Heritage Month. In this spirit of reflection, I want to thank all of the CSN family for your dedication, commitment and hard work. I am truly blessed to be in an organization dedicated to student success and community impact.

Federico

Student Union Dedication

I hope you will be able to join us when we officially dedicate the student union on our North Las Vegas campus in honor of the late Assemblyman Tyrone Thompson on November 14. Thompson was a great friend to our community and our campus, a true believer in the Students First philosophy guiding all of us. I remember him greeting CSN students warmly into his office when we were in Carson City earlier this year. You can find details about the event on our calendar.

Our student unions stand as shining examples to the Students First approach we take at CSN.

As you know, the unions on each campus have quickly become popular spaces for our students to study, grab a bite to eat, relax between class and gather with their friends. The unions make the college experience better for all. They began as an idea from student government leaders years ago and I’m proud to see them come to fruition.

Coach Tim Chambers

CSN has built an impressive array of athletic programs over the years, and Coach Tim Chambers was at the foundation of it all. Chambers, who coached the CSN Coyotes baseball team from 2000 to 2010 and brought home a national championship in 2003, died on October 27. He will be sorely missed by everyone at CSN. The success of our student athletes both on and off the field was always a priority for Coach Chambers, and his legacy will live on. Read Athletic Director Dexter Irvin’s letter.

Leadership Academy

If you have not yet submitted your application to our new CSN Leadership Academy, I encourage you to do so now. The deadline is November 15. The program is open to all employees and utilizes the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People model of principle-based leadership. The application is available online or via PDF for download. Please contact program director Dr. Gillian.Silver-Rodis@csn.edu for more information.

Holiday Card & Holiday Party

I hope you will all join me at the CSN Holiday Party in the Charleston Campus Student Union Ballroom from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, December 12. After a successful semester, I am excited to celebrate the holidays with our faculty and staff who always put our students first. Please keep an eye on your email for more details about this event. As a reminder, I am seeking artwork submissions for our CSN Holiday Card. You can learn more about that and how to enter here.

University Police Services

I hope you all saw the message from Associate Vice President & Director of University Police Services, Southern Command Adam Garcia noting the changes regarding our Henderson facilities. As of now, University Police Services is providing 24/7 service to the CSN Henderson Campus, the Green Valley Tech Center, and the Water Street Centers, including dispatch services via UPD’s Dispatch Center. This change will provide improved response times for police, fire and medical services while also continuing to provide calls for service for campus security and after hour emergency requests for Facilities Management. Police will also provide increased patrols of these properties, including in vehicle patrol coverage and targeted foot patrols.

Also, working with Facilities Management, you will note signs communicating the prohibition of weapons on state property. Additional signage will be deployed throughout all campus locations in coming months.

Dean of the School of Arts & Letters

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Vartouhi Asherian, the new interim dean of the School of Arts and Letters! Dr. Asherian has been with CSN for many years, and she has a strong professional background in community college and public school teaching. She also brings a strong understanding of educational technology and has demonstrated great skill in working with faculty. She holds advanced degrees in Instructional Design and Distance Education, Curriculum and Instruction, and Education Administration. She serves on a national AACC-affiliated board and is engaged with NWCCU, our accrediting body, representing CSN in a professional capacity. She is also deeply committed to our community, and is particularly engaged in the arts.

PTK Honors Bruno Rhodes

Please join me in congratulating CSN English Professor Bruno Rhodes, who was recently honored by the Phi Theta Kappa honor society for his service as CSN’s PTK advisor! I was pleased to present Bruno with a pin from PTK in appreciation of his dedication to his students and to our student success mission. CSN will also purchase a brick in Bruno’s honor to be placed at the Phi Theta Kappa Center for Excellence Alpha Courtyard at the organization’s national headquarters. Congratulations!

Coyote Cupboards Now Open

I am pleased to say the food pantries are now open in each of our student unions. The Coyote Cupboards provide a valuable resource to our students who may struggle with food insecurity and hunger. As you know, the pantries were made possible with a $300,000 grant from the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. The cupboards are being run in cooperation with Three Square Food Bank and the CSN student government.

Read the Press Release

Jeanne Clery Report

As required by federal law, we recently released our annual security report, which includes three years’ worth of statistics for specific crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on non-campus properties owned or controlled by the college, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campuses. You can read the full report at the link below.

Read the Full Report

HSI/MSI Symposium

I hope you were able to attend the HSI/MSI Symposium in the Horn Theater last week. The daylong symposium was part of a three-day event in collaboration with the other NSHE institutions where we heard from national experts on issues related to diversity in higher education. I am so thankful to all our elected leaders and to the higher education community for their enthusiastic participation and support. We are grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with other professionals and community members to leverage our resources to help achieve high-level outcomes for minority students.

New Inclusive Learning Leader

I am pleased to announce Nora Mirabal has been named interim executive director of inclusive learning and engagement. Nora has been with the College of Southern Nevada in a number of different roles for the last 24 years, most recently with the Jumpstart Concurrent Enrollment Program. She started in the human resources department and working in marketing and public relations as well. She has been with the Jumpstart program since its inception and has helped grow the program to more than 3,500 students. As you know, I am committed to our diversity efforts and putting out students on path to graduate, complete transfer and prosper and I know with Nora as an executive director we’ll continue that work.

Important Multi-Campus Model Announcement: Counseling Department Transition

The Plan

In alignment with the multi-campus plan, CSN counselors are moving from a model that promotes access to enrollment to one that supports access to completion. To do this, we will need a systemic redesign of the student experience and the role of counselors from academic advising to integrated support and retention services. The efforts will coalesce around the Guided Pathways and Lost Momentum framework and scale collaboration between Academic Advisors and Counselors.

Scope of Work

The counselors will serve as the frontline service providers for the Multicultural Centers and Bump Up, and develop Individualized Student Success Plans for the following students: 

  • E-alerts
  • At-risk student support/counseling with at-risk being identified as:
    • Students on academic warning status
    • Students on academic probation
    • Students on continued probation status
    • Students who have lost financial aid eligibility (such as SSOG and Millennium)

The Timeline

Over the next two months, Dr. Pearson and the counselors will collaborate with key stakeholders to develop a comprehensive and integrated support and retention services plan. Key benchmarks are outlined below.  

Phase I: September 13

Faculty Senate voted on a resolution to temporarily transition the Counseling Department to the Charleston Campus Vice President & Provost in alignment with the multi-campus model and centralized services.

Phase II: September 20

Department of Counseling transitioned to the Charleston Campus Vice President & Provost. Two counselors per campus will be assigned to the Student Unions, as determined (or in concert) with the respective Campus Vice President & Provost. One counselor position at each campus will be administratively assigned as a program lead.     

Phase III: September 23

President approval and campus announcement regarding the temporary transition of the Counseling Department to the Charleston Campus Vice President & Provost. 

Phase IV: October 4

Campus Vice Presidents & Provosts and Counseling Department Representatives will meet with Executive Faculty Senate to provide an update on the counseling services model, Department Chair position and request for a policy amendment to change the permanent reporting structure to the President or designated Campus Vice President & Provost.      

Phase V: October 11

Campus Vice Presidents & Provosts and Counseling Department Representatives presentation to entire Faculty Senate on the counseling service model, proposed reporting structure, Department Chair job description, appropriate evaluation metrics and request for a policy amendment to change the permanent reporting structure to the President or designated Campus Vice President & Provost.   

Phase VI: October 20

Faculty Senate vote on the requested policy amendment to change the reporting structure for the Counseling Department. 

Phase VII: November 8

Faculty Senate final vote on requested policy amendment to change the reporting structure for the Department of Counseling.  

By capitalizing on established research and efforts set for by the Student Affairs Leadership and Counselors, we have reached an important turning point in our planning and Shared Governance process. Thank you to everyone who has and will continue to support the work of the Counseling Department.

Remembering October 1

CSN joins our Southern Nevada community on the anniversary of that tragic night to remember the victims and their families. We will hold a vigil at 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 1, encourage a moment of silence, offer message boards on each campus, and sponsor blood drives throughout the month.

Consider Observing a Moment of Silence

Whether you are teaching, in a meeting or just walking across campus, take a moment on October 1 to reflect on the events of two years ago. If you or someone you know at CSN needs to talk with someone, we have Counseling and Psychological Services available to students and the Employee Assistance Program available for staff.

Remember With a Message

There are occasions when we have an easier time expressing our feelings in writing. If you would like to do so, visit one of our remembrance message boards set up near student government offices in the student unions on each main campus. These message boards will be available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. September 30 and October 1 and will be transported to the North Las Vegas campus on October 1 for the 7 p.m. vigil.

Attend the Candlelight Vigil

Our campus community and the Southern Nevada community will come together at 7 p.m. October 1 on the North Las Vegas Campus for a candlelight vigil.

Help Our Community Be Better Prepared
Give the gift of life. Donate blood at one of our on-campus blood drives.
