The Chancellor's Commission on the Status of Women (CCSW) at UNO will host its 29th Annual Luncheon on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. We hope you join us in the celebration at our next luncheon!

The luncheon will be held from 11:30am - 1:00pm in the Milo Bail Student Center (MBSC) Ballroom. Tickets may be purchased by students, faculty, staff or community members at a cost of $5 individually or $40 for a table with 8 seats at the MBSC Business Office in Room 224 or by calling 402-554-2979.

The luncheon celebrates the contributions of those who have demonstrated excellence in leadership, academics, service, and support for gender equity at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Award recipients for the Legendary Woman of UNO Award, Outstanding Achievement Award, Community Service Award, and the Undergraduate Scholarship Award are presented at this annual event. For criteria for each award, scholarship, and its past recipients, visit the Award Application page.

"CCSW is moving forward with the opportunities presented to expand the services and support CCSW can provide to UNO and our greater metropolitan community. We look forward to sharing those with everyone at the luncheon," said Kathe Oleson Lyons, CCSW co-chair.

In addition to celebrating the many contributions women have made to our campus community, CCSW has also hosted a raffle at the luncheon to raise funds for the Employee Loan Fund. Established in 2010, the Employee Loan Fund seeks to help employees that have an unexpected financial hardship. For a list of 2015 CCSW Luncheon Raffle Items Click Here.
