UNO Ambassadors Available for Campus Activities

Twelve student UNO Ambassadors have been selected - based on their academic achievement, leadership and communication skills - to represent the university. This select group serves as hosts for university-related functions at the request of deans, directors, department chairs and other UNO faculty and staff.

Ambassadors act as official greeters for university activities, interact with guests to enhance a positive image of the university and, occasionally, lead campus tours.

The group is available for events beginning Friday, Aug. 1. Ambassadors try to honor as many requests as possible. Requests should be placed at least two weeks before the scheduled activity.

Maring Receives 2008 Book Artists Award in Ireland

Marvel Maring, reference librarian with Criss Library, recently received the 2008 Book Artists Award at Clo' in Ireland. The award provided an all-expense-paid trip to teach bookmaking workshops at the Clo' artists facility from June 2-6 in Co Donegal in Ireland. Clo' is a resource facility for the creation and production of art. Its visual workshop combines traditional forms of image making with contemporary media. Clo' is an artist lead initiative that provides a platform for creative exchange between artists worldwide and the Gaeltacht community.

Maring taught nine students about bookbinding and book creation. In addition to teaching, she received full workshop access and accommodations at the artist-in-residency house, in addition to a living and travel stipend. The experience provided the opportunity to research, develop and teach, as well as explore ideas and work processes in a new environment to improve international networks of artists.
