Assistant Professor of Speech Pathology About Nevada State College
Founded in 2002, NSC is a four-year public college
located on a developing 500-acre campus in the foothills of
Henderson, Nevada (adjacent to Las Vegas). Our faculty and staff
members enjoy the rare opportunity to mold the college as it
continues to grow into a cornerstone of higher education in
Southern Nevada. NSC emphasizes high-quality instruction,
exemplary student support, evidence-based practices, and innovation
as a means to more efficient, effective outcomes in all departments
across campus.
NSC currently serves 4,000+ students who are highly diverse
and largely underserved-a majority of our students are first
generation, racial/ethnic minorities. We seek applicants who are
passionate about working with this promising student population and
collaborating with faculty and staff across departments to make a
lasting impact in developing our young institution.
At Nevada State College, we celebrate the storied backgrounds of
our campus community. We operate with a shared commitment to
represent and serve the diverse population of Nevada and to
encourage the exchange of ideas that respects and honors the lived
experiences of our students, staff, and faculty. We foster a
culture of inclusive excellence so our members can live
authentically, fully engage, and flourish. In order to strengthen
the college and progress its mission, the college dedicates itself
to intentional and ongoing reflection to meeting the evolving needs
of NSC, the surrounding communities, and the State of Nevada.
We are committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and
strongly urge women and minorities to apply.
Our School of Education (SOE) is an exciting place to be. More than
600 undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students are pursuing
licensure programs in elementary, special, & secondary
education as well as speech-language pathology. In response to a
statewide shortage of K-12 educators, NSC has made a
strong commitment to building out the School of Education (SOE).

launched. As a part of this, the SOE is currently
planning for a master's degree in speech-language pathology which
will be the first master's degree offered at NSC!
