We are nimble enough to adapt and change to meet the needs of our students and our region. We make big things happen through creative ideas, strategic planning and collaboration.
We care about learning that lasts a lifetime. Whether you’re a student attending WNC for the first time or an individual coming back to college to retool for the changing Nevada, Western is the place to help you achieve your goals.

We promote active student engagement through the Associated Students of Western Nevada, the Latino Cohort, Veterans Resource Center, Disability Support Services and other campus groups.
