The Center is very proud to welcome new members to the Advisory Board, including Adam Laxalt, pictured above, who was recently sworn in as the Attorney General of the State of Nevada.

The Center’s Advisory Board gathered in Reno for their annual meeting with Center faculty, staff and graduate students this past weekend. Among the much business that was attended to, the board welcomed two new members: Adam Laxalt, the state of Nevada’s new Attorney General, and Annette Bidart, co-founder of the investment firm of Bidart & Ross.

The Center’s Advisory Board is an international group of supporters of the Center that includes the State of Nevada’s superintendent of education, Dale Erquiaga, former president of the University of the Basque Country Pello Salaburu, Center professor emeritus, William A. Douglass, and Nevada Supreme Court Justice Ron Parraguirre. Click here to read full biographies of all Advisory Board Members.

In addition to Center business, the Board also welcomed UNR President Marc Johnson, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts Heather Hardy, and the representative of the Angeles Arrien Foundation, Tenzin Llahdron. The Angeles Arrien Foundation chose the Center this past year as a recipient of an important grant for Intergenerational Literature.
