Welcome Our New Case Manager
I'd like to extend a warm NSC welcome to Laura Hinojosa as our new Case Manager for the Student CARE Team. Laura has master's degrees in Counseling Psychology and Special Education. She has previously held positions as an academic advisor, student counselor, K-12 special education teacher, and a career coach at Goodwill. We're very excited to have her join our team.

At the same time, I'm sad to see Laura Carroll, our interim Case Manager, leave. I've known Laura since she was a student in my gender class, and she's done a tremendous job filling in this past year. While it's been great working with her, I'm thrilled to see her move on to pursue graduate school and her long-term career goals. Laura C.'s last day is this Friday, March 22nd.

If you're a graduate student, the institution where you're enrolled is considered your home institution for IRB purposes; you must go through their IRB approval process, even if you're a full-time employee at NSC and the research will occur here. If you're wanting to do research here, talk to your graduate advisor about it, as it's a big no-no to do research without your home institution's knowledge and approval.

GradFit Update
More than 30 NSC students applied to UNR's GradFit program, which helps them prepare for graduate school. Of those, 14 have been accepted to the no-cost program. Thank you to everyone who got the word out to students!
