Welcome from the President

Dear Students, Friends, and Campus Community,

From the moment you begin your studies or employment, you will notice the people surrounding and supporting you are dedicated to making your time at Chadron State College rewarding and enjoyable. Chadron State College, founded in 1911, is the only four-year, regionally accredited college in the western half of Nebraska. As a public institution with its roots in teacher education, Chadron State has evolved into a comprehensive college with a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs. The College takes pride in its accessibility and affordability and values diversity and inclusion in people and thought. CSC also seeks to harness impactful experiences and outcomes for its students and employees, and recognizes student engagement and learning is a principle component to its mission:

“Chadron State College delivers experiences that foster knowledgeable and engaged leaders and citizens to enrich the High Plains region and beyond.”

The College chooses to celebrate collaboration and works diligently to create alignment between every department on campus. In fact, alignment is a crucial element of Chadron State 2030, the college’s collection of strategic plans. Chadron State 2030 brings together the Master Academic Plan, the Campus Master Plan, and the Chadron State Foundation’s comprehensive campaign. All three work together to create a high-quality learning environment for students and an engaging and rewarding place to live and work.

For more than a century, Chadron State College has supported the region and developed engaged leaders and wise followers. I am proud of CSC’s accomplishments and I am eager to see what other great things our students and employees have in store for the high plains region and beyond. Welcome to Chadron State College!

Dr. Randy Rhine
President, Chadron State College
