Nevada is a rapidly growing state, and the complexity of the challenges which government administrators face in regards to conducting the public business has grown as well. The Nevada Leadership Program is designed to help elected and appointed officials and government executives and the general public develop their skills so that the public's business can be conducted in ways that are both responsible and transparent and efficient and effective.

The Nevada Leadership Program, part of the University of Nevada, Reno's University Center for Economic Development, is designed to improve public accountability and responsibility and organizational efficiency and effectiveness by teaching the skills that elected and appointed officials, government executives, and the general public in Nevada need in order to conduct the public's business through non-formal education. In general, the Nevada Leadership Program offers training on the State's open meeting laws, the Nevada code of administrative ethics, basic principles of public budgeting and finance, economic development, land use planning, and other aspects of public policy development, implementation, and administration.

The mission of the Nevada Leadership Program is to improve overall public accountability and responsibility and organizational efficiency and effectiveness in the administration of government in Nevada.  It is our Vision to develop and deliver exceptional nontraditional education through the outreach of University colleges and departments in the areas of public administration and management, public policy, economic development and planning for elected and appointed officials, government executives, and the general public in the State of Nevada and to do so collaboratively with willing public sector and private sector partners.
