Who We Serve
UNO and Community Partnership Spaces
The Weitz CEC houses three separate community/university partnership spaces totaling 10,500 square feet.
Two of these spaces are on the first floor and one is on the second floor of the building. All three are fully furnished, with flexible office spaces for UNO and community organizations, each selected through our space application process. These organizations include:
- Education (K-12 or higher education partners)
- Private sector organizations
- Grant-funded initiatives

Community Engagement Meeting Spaces
The 24 meeting and event spaces are available at no charge for not-for-profit organizations or initiatives, using the space for the public good. The spaces are intended for community and UNO organizations for programming, service learning, volunteerism, or long-term collaboration. Some examples of previous confirmed events include:
- Nonprofit board meeting
- Volunteer fair
- Volunteer training
- A community dialogue
- A nonprofit staff retreat
- A student's service-learning project
- Service learning seminar
Learn more about our meeting spaces.
More open areas for our building partner organizations, students, faculty, and staff are available for organic or impromptu meetings that are for the public good, or relate to community engagement, including service-learning and volunteer meetings.
These following spaces were designed with the idea that more than one group would be working in the same space at any given time.
- Lower Commons Lounge
- The Judy Monaghan Shared Resource Center (first floor shared resource center)
- The Second Floor Shared Resource Center
UNO Signature Outreach Programs
The Weitz CEC is home to three of UNO's signature outreach programs including:
- Service Learning Academy
- The Office of Civic and Social Responsibility
- The William Brennan Institute for Labor Studies
The Weitz CEC serves as the nexus for metropolitan outreach for the campus, connecting university resources and interests with community needs.
