Brookings Mountain West is a partnership between UNLV and the Brookings Institution, the world's leading think tank, based in Washington, D.C. This initiative brings Brookings' high-quality, independent, and impactful research to a wide range of issues facing the dynamic Intermountain West region.

Scholars from all five Brookings research areas — metropolitan policy, economic studies, governance studies, foreign policy, and global economy and development — will spend a total of three weeks a year per program in residence at UNLV. During their visits, they will conduct research, deliver lectures, and meet with university faculty, students, and community leaders.
