About the Heritage Center
The Heritage Center is a conduit for creating a vibrant and open campus embodying the principles of respect, openness, tolerance, and mutual understanding among all members of the Nevada State College community. Exhibitions and events furthering the center’s mission of promoting awareness and appreciation for the contributions of all races, cultures, lifestyles, and religions are regularly presented throughout the year.
Nevada State College opened its doors to students in September 2002 after the Nevada Board of Regents and Nevada State Legislature determined the need for enhanced educational opportunities in Southern Nevada in 1997. The college currently enrolls 1,950 students.
NSC’s main campus is located on over 500 acres in the foothills of Henderson and provides progressive bachelors programs in several in-demand fields of study. Nevada State College offers a low student-to-professor ratio and competitive tuition rates.
