    WRIN is a member of the National Council for the Research on Women, a network of institutions committed to improving the lives of women and girls.

    The Women’s Research Institute of Nevada actively supports research on women and girls by encouraging new research and coordinating existing research activities.

    One of WRIN’s largest research programs has been the collection of oral histories of Nevada’s women. WRIN also works to develop original research for use by schools, businesses, governmental agencies, and other public interest groups in support of policies that benefit women and their families.

    We host Gender Research Roundtables, lunchtime presentations on current research-in-progress to give visibility to scholars. WRIN also works to bring guest speakers to the UNLV campus to present their research on issues related to gender.

    As a member of a network of more than 100 other women’s institutes from across the country through the National Council of Research on Women, WRIN has access to an abundance of information on current research trends nationwide, thus stimulating new ideas for study and offering increased opportunities for collaboration.
