Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The College of Liberal Arts and the Women's Research Institute of Nevada (WRIN) are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Rachael Robnett, associate professor of psychology, as the new director of WRIN. Dr. Robnett will begin the directorship on July 1, 2024.

As you know, Dr. Caryll Dziedziak retired from UNLV and WRIN in December 2023 after a long and productive career. We want to thank Dr. Dziedziak for the work she has done over the years to develop WRIN and to serve our community. Although her leadership will be missed, we will forever appreciate the role she played in building WRIN into the vibrant institute it is today.

Please help me welcome Dr. Robnett as she assumes this new leadership role. We are excited about her vision for WRIN’s next chapter and look forward to working collaboratively with her to support and promote WRIN’s research and community mission throughout the state of Nevada.
