On March 8th, United Way President & CEO Ms. Kyle B. Rahn joined presidents from College of Southern Nevada (CSN), Nevada State College (NSC), and University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) to pledge support for initiatives and proven strategies that will move our state forward at the Complete College America (CCA) Metro Momentum Action Summit. Each organization pledged their support in a signing ceremony and celebrated a new beginning for our communities, knowing these strategies mean more Nevadans will be on the path to earn degrees and credentials of value.
United Way is proud to be engaged in this collaborative effort with committed partners to showcase and to keep building a dynamic workforce in our growing state. This opportunity will guide and ensure all Nevadans are on a career pathway with the postsecondary credentials needed to engage and succeed in today’s thriving labor-market. We look forward to embarking in this pathway to success alongside our community partners, with the support and leadership of the Lumina Foundation and the evidence-based strategies of Complete College America.
UNLV, NSC, and CSN will implement proven strategies of a nationally recognized guided pathways approach which include the implementation of meta majors, proactive academic and career advising, math and English remediation reform, and much more. Most importantly, students won’t be on their own as they work to figure out what they want to study, how their college goals align to local workforce needs, how to finish their degrees or certificates as quickly as possible, and how to clear the hurdles they’ll face along the way.
As a Metro Momentum Pathway designated region, Southern Nevada institutions are poised to close equity gaps and generate significant gains in college completion rates for the students in our Southern Nevada metro region. We look forward to celebrating the many successes of our Southern Nevada community as we move our state forward together.
