New Leadership Nevada Logo

NEW Leadership Nevada is our flagship educational outreach program. Our June six-day summer institute brings together 25 college students from across the state to learn about leadership and civic participation from accomplished women leaders. NEW Leadership Nevada is open to undergraduate and graduate students attending a college or university in Nevada.  Students attend at absolutely no personal costs.  We raise the funding to cover all travel, lodging, and meal expenses. Nevada residents attending schools in other states are also encouraged to apply.

A key component of our research mission involves engaging in and researching educational programs. We are dedicated to teaching and mentoring women. We also work to develop the skills and talents of the next generation of researchers. We have a number of initiatives that focus on pedagogy, as well as training future researchers and leaders.

The Gender Research Roundtable Series

There is an incredible amount of ongoing scholarly research at UNLV about gender-related issues. The faculty and students who conduct this research are scattered across a number of departments and disciplines, making it difficult to build collaborative research relationships and gather helpful feedback on emerging work. The Gender Research Roundtable Series (GRR) fills this gap by promoting community and collaboration among scholars across disciplinary and methodological space. WRIN hosts a number of GRR events each year, where members of the gender research community come together to listen to presentations and discuss drafts of projects during the early and middle stages of development. GRR presentations are announced throughout the academic year, and an updated list of events can be found on our events page.

Student Internships & Research Fellows

We are dedicated to training the next generation of scholars through internships and research fellowships at WRIN. We are pleased to work with other units and programs to offer internships for credit for students who are interested in learning about the research process. In addition, we frequently offer project-based internships and research positions. Meet our 2020-2021 interns. For information on current opportunities, please visit our section on ways to collaborate. If you'd like to work with WRIN to sponsor or endow a paid internship or a research fellowship, please see donate.
