Director’s Message

Dear friends of WRIN,

It’s amazing to think that we’ve launched our twenty-second year here on the UNLV campus.  We are thankful for the many supporters who have believed in our mission from our early presence in 1999 and over the many years since.

We are happy to put the challenges of 2020 behind us and look forward to a healthier and happier year ahead.  Despite transitioning to a remote work environment, our staff has found creative ways to move our projects forward.

Their dedication is the driving force of our institute.

We are in full planning mode for the upcoming 2021 NEW Leadership Nevada program. We will be hosting this amazing leadership and civic engagement training virtually again this June.  However, we are hopeful that Fall 2021 will allow us to invite friends and supporters together to celebrate the NEW Leadership graduates. Stay posted!

Please check our website for upcoming announcements and program notes:

As always, our work could not continue without the support of our Community Advisory Board and many community supporters. Thank you!

Dr. Caryll Batt Dziedziak
