The NNIC The Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC) is located about a mile West of the beautiful campus of the University of Nevada, Reno and is a non-profit organization serving Nevada’s educational and international oriented communities.
Our main objective is to foster better understanding between people through our public diplomacy programs, our language and culture projects and foreign policy forums. We serve as a resource for local residents as well as visitors interested in international activities and events. Our key programs include organizing programs for international visitors through the U.S. Department of State and other federal agencies; providing interpretation and translation services in over 60 languages; organizing educational events and activities for the university and general community, and serving as northern Nevada's refugee resettlement agency to help displaced persons.
Annually the NNIC hosts the Global Gala, our primary fundraiser, where we celebrate our community and its efforts to increase international awareness in Nevada and for the delegates who have to come Reno from abroad.
We host international visitors, students, scholars and professionals from the multiple international exchange programs. Feel free to explore our Programs page to learn more about the many interesting and diverse program and activities we develop here at the Northern Nevada International Center.
