Best of 2013: Nation's First Tribal Emergency Management Certificate Offered by UNO, iTEMA

It was a special year for UNO in 2013 with countless events, achievements, special guest visits and national recognitions for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

UNO's College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) Emergency Services Program and the College of Arts and Sciences Native American Studies Program partnered with iTEMA, the nation's leading Tribal Emergency Management Association, to create the country's first certificate in emergency management designed for members of tribal nations.

The goal of the certificate is to provide nationally accredited certification to members of every tribal nation in the country.

For more information, visit the UNO homepage in the afternoon.

UNO Participating in Miracle on Farnam

The University of Nebraska at Omaha is a proud participant in this year's Miracle on Farnam at Midtown Crossing. Midtown Crossing's Miracle on Farnam is a season-long celebration of creativity, good cheer and authentic holiday pleasures. Stroll in the glow of sparkling lights, sip hot chocolate, and enjoy Midtown Crossing's newest holiday tradition -- a parade of dazzling window displays. All along Farnam Street, Omaha's creative nonprofits will showcase their artistry and imagination by transforming ordinary window space into holiday miracles.

Be sure to stop by Midtown Crossing to enjoy the holiday festivities and view UNO's winter window at the Miracle on Farnam. It's all free to the public, three hours of garage parking included. The displays are available for viewing every day from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. through New Year's Day. Visit and vote for your favorite window often!

UNO's window features the work of Bertha Megendoht-Hatz, a supporter of the UNO Art and Art History Department, work by BFA student Kristine Hansen-Cain, and set design by UNO Theatre major Tommy Hanlon and University Communications Graphic Designer Althea Satterfield. The UNO window is located in space #8, one space west of the Marcus Midtown Cinema, on the attached map.
