Organizations housed in the CEC will share a commitment to improve our community through cooperative programming, reciprocity, commitment to diversity, open communication, and collective and individual impact.

Application forms are available through the UNO CEC website. The website contains other information, including the CEC's mission and values, furniture and building design, and FAQs. We are accepting applications from both community organizations (including nonprofit and grassroots organizations, government entities, education, social entrepreneurs, collaborations, etc.) as well as UNO-based initiatives (emanating from colleges, departments, student organizations, campus collaborations, volunteer organizations, etc.). UNO-based organizations should complete the “internal” application; community-based organizations should complete the “external" application.

Applications for this round must be emailed to UNO at unocec@unomaha.edu no later than Aug. 31 at 5 p.m. There will be additional calls for applications in November 2013 and February 2014.
