II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The building will be approximately 65,000 gross square feet and house classroom space and faculty offices for new and expanding education programs as well as space for hands-on teacher learning. The Foundation has $750,000 match on hand, is pending a sale of donated property for an additional $1.8M for the match. The College will provide $1.2M from easement proceeds. The Foundation is currently in discussion with several high-potential donors to raise the additional $2.25M that will complete the proposed $6M to be match with $20M from the State to design and construct the building.
17. Project Justification: Earlier this year, Governor Sandoval declared a state of emergency in Nevada when he addressed our critical lack of K12 teachers. The School of Education at Nevada State College, under the leadership of its new Dean, has crafted a strategic plan that takes a multi-faceted approach to address this shortage. The planned expansion will require additional classroom, faculty office and specialized spaces including a state of the art preschool that would provide an innovative educational environment in which to train new preschool teachers to help alleviate this critical state shortage. The proposed Education building would also include a Speech Language Pathology clinic that would provide students with the opportunity to learn by working with students.
18. Project Background Information: In its entire history, Nevada State College has only been allocated State funding for one campus building. That building was designed to be more than 100,000 square feet but was only funded at a level to construct at 42,000 square feet. NSC students wanted a campus so desperately that they voted to increase their own fees so that two additional buildings could be constructed on campus. NSC has increased its enrollment by more than 60% since 2008 when the first NSC building was constructed. The two new buildings only begin to address the capacity shortage at NSC. In order to be successful in addressing the State’s teacher shortage and to expand the educational mission of Nevada State College, additional space needs to be provided.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
19b. Year existing equipment was installed:
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
19d. Model of existing equipment:
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? Unknown
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement?
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Additional space is required in order to expand the education programs at Nevada State College that will address the State's shortfall of qualified teachers in the State of Nevada. Nevada State College is poised to create new programs that will have a tremendous impact on the ability to graduate more qualified teachers for the State and, particularly, teachers in specialized areas where there is critical demand. Without the new space, NSC will be limited in its ability to assist in resolving this issue.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): The children of Nevada must be provided with the opportunity for a high quality education that is led by highly qualified teachers. NSC is determined to increase the number of highly qualified teachers that are in the pipeline.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
23b. Explain:
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project?
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 8/15/2019
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? There is an immediate need for the additional space in order to provide the expanding education programs the space they need to generate successful graduates. Given that the building will need to be designed and constructed, even the most optimistic scheduled will require 18 months for design and contractor selection, planning, permitting and construction. An academic building needs to be completed by the start of an academic term and the optimum term is the fall semester.
