ADDING VALUE TO THE COMMUNITY THROUGH SERVICE, KNOWLEDGE AND SUPPORT
Julie Kronberg (Grotelueschen) is a student in the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders. She chose UNO because of the many opportunities to enhance her educational experience, but also to be connected within the university system and the Omaha community. Through classroom practicums, university organizations, and extracurricular activities, she was able to work with professionals in the university system to serve the local community, specifically those she would be interacting with through her special education degree. Julie says, "Working directly with professors motivated me to be a better individual, student, and professional. My heart and passion for special education has increased because of opportunities provided by UNO."
