UNO Campus Icon

Feedback is sought from all users. To better assess usability and opportunities for improvement in the university's web presence, the Office of University's Relations has engaged the services of Survey Monkey to make an electronic "UNO Website User Survey" available to its users.

This survey is intended to measure both navigational and user needs. It will help University Relations' staff continue to refine to meet individual (college/departmental/organizational) website requirements and align UNO's website with the current campus-wide rebranding campaign. Everyone's feedback is critical in guiding this effort. Individuals will also be given the opportunity to volunteer to be part of the focus group.

The survey for all users is posted online at The survey, which officially started Dec. 5, will be posted through Sunday, Dec. 11, at which time it will be closed and the results tabulated.
