Who makes $100K at CSN?

Nearly 11 percent of College of Southern Nevada employees earned $100,000 or more in pay in 2022, public records show.

A handful of CNS administrators made more than $200,000, excluding benefits such as contributions to the state pension system. However, the average pay for employees at the public community college – including part-time and temporary workers, and those who didn’t work the full year – was just $42,000, a data analysis shows.

For example, the college’s roughly 300 part-time instructors made on average $12,000 for the year, with one earning as little as $23 and another more than $58,000.
