Session Information:
This session proposal is designed as a behind the scenes look on our College Policy Journal Series initiative has elevated our College’s role as a leader in providing key information for our state. This session will share insights into how this initiative was developed and has been expanded over the years - the call for proposal, budget and funding, writing and editing process, marketing plan, event coordination, training and preparation and more - and how this initiative has allowed our College to help inform the education conversation in Nevada.

Background on Initiative:
The College of Education, University of Nevada Las Vegas is committed to engaging in research and evaluation efforts that align with contemporary legislative issues. As part of a biennial legislative cycle, College faculty and graduate students complete intensive research and complete white papers on key education issues that will be discussed within the Nevada legislature. The individual papers are compiled into a journal and disseminated to a large range of stakeholders including legislators, education organizations, etc. with a focus on sharing timely, relevant, and critical information on specific education related issues. The College has produced three volumes of the Policy Issues in Nevada Education journal within three consecutive legislative sessions. The policy journal series has become a staple in the work of the College and has increasingly gained attention from legislators and key education stakeholders in Nevada and beyond.
