People Make the Place
The buzz radiates from Mavericks on the move—our students and faculty—settling into new routines, eagerly rushing to class or meeting with friends, excited for what the future holds. We have so much to be proud of at UNO.
The energy is palpable at the ever-expanding College of Education, where we are delighted to offer our students cutting-edge facilities and the most innovative technologies in education and research. But the foundation of our growth and success is rooted in our strong, world-class faculty.
Our faculty recruitment efforts lead us to the finest professors and researchers, not only nationally, but globally, continuing UNO's long tradition of diversity. We provide students the opportunity to learn from premier, award-winning experts in their field.
Experts like Dr. Rebecca Pasco from our Library Science program and Dr. Melissa Cast-Brede from our Teacher Education program who are building strong communities and supporting literacy for all people through their work: Dr. Pasco by preparing the workforce for 21st-century libraries, and Dr. Cast-Brede by working with students to create literacy programs for incarcerated teens.
Or experts like Dr. Elliott Ostler and Dr. Neal Grandgenett, also from our Teacher Education program, recently recognized with two of the University of Nebraska’s most prestigious awards for their innovative and creative work with STEM education.
You, talented student, researcher, and future practitioner in our community, deserve the best quality education. We are honored to serve and support you, and excited for you to grow with us at this preeminent university.
Our door is always open! Stop by to visit with us at Roskens Hall, the School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation, or the Biomechanics Research Building. Learn more about our dynamic faculty in our latest publication, Happenings, or at coe.unomaha.edu.
