Carina Black - Exec. Director, NNIC

Refugee Resettlement Agency

A native of Argentina and a citizen of Switzerland and the US, Carina Black has lived in the United States since 1987. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Nevada, Reno in 1997 in Comparative Politics. She is the first Executive Director of the Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC). As an adjunct faculty member at the University of Nevada, Reno, Black has taught courses in global studies, world politics, comparative politics, democratization, international organizations and Latin American politics. At the NNIC, Black has focused her energies on growing programs through the US Department of State and USAID.

Carina will discuss the Northern Nevada International Center’s application to become a refugee resettlement agency, describe global displacement and how refugees arrive in the United States and in our city.  She will provide an overview of resettlement in the US and the vetting process, as well as what NNIC will need to make resettlement successful.


Our Current INTERNATIONAL Projects
IN PANAMA - Our club, with support from other Rotary clubs, is undertaking a major project for an orphanage for disabled children in Panama.
IN NEPAL - The Cow Farm Project, has produced milk sales revenue of almost $600 to date. Profits from the project will help sustain BTF’s maternal/child wellness and education efforts in the remote Humla District of northern Nepal. They will conduct two 5-day Safe Motherhood classes in November educating a total of 50 women.
