Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center

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.

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 technology available in Jess' Resource Center will help connect students with volunteer opportunities. Read more about Jess' life and her commitment to community service.

UNO + Omaha = National Leader in Engagement

Applications for space in the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center are now available. 

The UNO Weitz CEC is looking forward to seeing the makeover of the Henningson Memorial Plaza, due to be completed this August.  Lot E, the CEC's primary visitor lot, will be expanded to 89 stalls - Note the new drop-off lane!
