NEW Leadership™ is an award-winning national nonpartisan program to educate college women about politics and leadership and encourage them to become effective leaders in the political arena. The Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, developed the innovative program in 1991 and branched out to invite other universities into its NEW Leadership Development Network.

In 2001, the Women’s Research Institute of Nevada accepted CAWP’s invitation to join the development network and in 2003, held its first program. The Women’s Research Institute of Nevada at UNLV was the first site in the southwestern and Rocky Mountain states to host this program. As an official NEW Leadership™ Network Partner, we provide intensive training featuring an innovative curriculum.

The centerpiece of the N.E.W. Leadership program is a 6-day summer institute that brings together 25 college students from across the state to learn about civic participation from accomplished women leaders. Students meet formally and informally with leaders, mentors, and different career professionals through a series of panels, lectures, and interactive workshops and create lasting networks and mentoring relationships.
