NSC places a special emphasis on the advancement of diverse and largely underserved population. Located on a developing 500-acre campus in the foothills of Henderson, Nevada, NSC emphasizes high- quality instruction, exemplary service, engaging learning experiences and innovation.

The School of Education (SOE) is one of three schools at the College including the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the School of Nursing.
