Jess’ Resource Center
The Union Pacific Atrium is a special place to honor the legacy of Jessica Lutton Bedient who was best known for her passion for helping others in her community and around the world. Jess joined the University of Nebraska Foundation in 2008 and in 2010 she lost her life in a car accident.

The power of place. The power of partnership.

The University of Nebraska Omaha’s commitment to engagement has a new building fully dedicated to collaboration. The Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center is a nationally unique space that serves to strengthen UNO's existing outreach efforts and foster future opportunities for partnerships between UNO students, faculty, staff and nonprofit or governmental organizations. For 105 years, UNO has been dedicated to engagement and education within the Omaha metropolitan community, this special center adds a new venue from which this tradition can continue.
