UNO Makes Honor Roll for Higher Education Community Service
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) was recognized as one of 13 American Humanics colleges and universities named to the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll at the 2007 American Humanics Management Institute (AHMI) educational symposium, held Jan. 3 in Washington, D.C.
The President’s Honor Roll responds to President George W. Bush’s call to service by building on and supporting the civic engagement mission of the nation’s colleges and universities. The recognition highlights UNO’s leadership among 74 American Humanics campus programs and affilates. UNO representatives included, Paul Sather, director of the UNO Service-Learning Academy, and Kathe Oleson, UNO program assistant. The following student participants also attended: Sasha Clifton, Megan Cole, Bryan Freeman, Brittany Kneip, Jolin Morelock, Elizabeth Riley, and Kristi Wilson.
More than 580 American Humanics students and faculty, and more than 300 nonprofit and corporate leaders, took part in this opportunity to network and participate in simulated case studies and a national collegiate dialogue at the institute. Workshops were led by local and national experts in nonprofit management.
The purpose of the annual event is to expose junior and senior students to experiences they will encounter as youth and human service agency professionals. This unique educational symposium is considered the capstone professional development experience for students enrolled in the American Humanics nonprofit management program. It is held annually during the first week of January and rotates to a different city each year.
