“Continuing to enhance student success and retention are key objectives at Nevada State College,” said NSC Provost and Executive Vice President Erika Beck. “Gateway courses are stepping stones in a student’s path to completing their degree program and are therefore an important foundation for their success. We’re honored to have the opportunity to work so closely with John Gardner, a world renowned expert in the field, as our institution strengthens the first year retention of our students and ultimately produces a larger number of career-ready graduates.”
Creating new opportunities for Nevada State College students to both engage in their coursework and achieve academic success; the Student Academic Center has launched a Supplemental Instruction (SI) program. SI is a free student service that focuses on historically difficult courses, such as math and biology, and encourages students to take advantage of highly interactive, peer-organized study sessions.
“I was very thrilled when the opportunity to partner with the NSCF came about as this is the first time I am given the chance to provide a scholarship to a local college,” said Reynaldo Robledo, owner of RTS. “I feel it is very important for local companies to give back to the community whenever possible – it is a win-win for everyone.”
