Welcome CSN’s New Chief of Staff-Chief Diversity Officer

Dear CSN Family,

I am pleased to announce that former Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly has been appointed the Chief of Staff-Chief Diversity Officer for the College of Southern Nevada.

Weekly has a proven lifetime record of leadership and commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. His background aligns with CSN’s mission and values in a profound and inspiring way. I am thrilled to welcome Mr. Weekly to CSN during this critical time in our history — a time characterized by organizational and transformational change.

During his tenure as commissioner, Weekly was widely regarded as a champion for education, workforce development, and social causes. More recently, he served as vice chairman of the Clark County Commission. He was also the first African-American to chair the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority Board of Directors. He has served as Chair of the Board of Trustees for University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, Western Regional Representative for the National Association of Black County Officials (NABCO), and served with the Nevada Association of Counties (NACO), the Clark County Liquor & Gaming Licensing Board, and the Local Law Enforcement Advisory Board that awards millions to valley wide programs dedicated to improving the quality of life for families in Clark County.

As chief of staff, Weekly will report directly to me and will work closely with CSN leadership to develop and implement an action plan intended to further diversity and inclusion, at all levels, so our institution mirrors the diversity of our students and community.

Weekly is a native Nevadan and graduate of Western High School. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication from Grambling State University, and holds a Master of Public Administration from UNLV, where he also teaches public policy. He and his wife Kim have two children, Malik and Kenya.

Please join me in welcoming Lawrence Weekly to the CSN Family!
