The state of Nevada’s economy has been steadily changing. As both the tourism and the technology sector have grown it has become increasingly important for Nevada business, institutions and our workforce focus to situate themselves within a global economy. For the University of Nevada, Reno to be poised not only to train that workforce, but also facilitate international relationships through research and collaboration and create pathways for faculty and students to identify opportunities for growth, our university joined a cohort of 13 institutions in the ACE Internationalization LAB.
