During the course of the past year, Southern Nevada saw the University of Nevada – Las Vegas (UNLV) join the ranks of some of the country’s top academic institutions by earning an R1 Carnegie classification, high school graduation rate hit a record 85 percent, and new investment and redevelopment throughout the region’s downtown areas.

The SNS Office continued to collaborate with stakeholders toward advancing important regional initiatives. Efforts included hosting a four-part workshop series aimed at improving the region’s federal grant competitiveness, and convening stakeholders for a roundtable discussion with former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx on workforce development and equity.

The report also includes an update to the SNS Indicators Dashboard, which tracks community-level data used to help gauge the well-being of the region. Notable progress was made in median household income, high school graduation rate, percentage of insured adults, and food security rates.
