College of Southern Nevada Appoints New President

Driven. Approachable. Inclusive.

And passionate for change.

These are among the adjectives College of Southern Nevada faculty and staff used to describe their next leader after their first interactions with him.

The state Board of Regents on Friday unanimously appointed Federico Zaragoza as the next president of CSN.

“I think he’s the one who has the most potential to transform our campus,” Regent Trevor Hayes said.

Zaragoza, who holds a Ph.D. in urban education and administrative leadership from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, was one of four finalists in a search that one regent lauded as being “unbelievable” because of the caliber of the candidates.
