PKI Recognized for Statewide Partnerships, Support
Omaha - Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman and Nebraska Diplomats, Inc., presented the University of Nebraska Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) with the “Power Is In The Partnerships” award at a special banquet Sept. 10 in Lincoln.
Mike McGinnis, PKI executive director, accepted the award on behalf of the institute. PKI was presented with the award for “outstanding contributions to economic development – as a partner, participant and supporter of Nebraska.”
The award recognizes Nebraska organizations each year that go above and beyond in working with other organizations and volunteers to accomplish economic goals for the State of Nebraska.
“We are honored to be recognized for our working relationships with government and industry partners,” McGinnis said. “The award is reflective of PKI’s efforts to foster economic growth throughout the metro area and the State of Nebraska.”
The Peter Kiewit Institute is a University of Nebraska-level institute that resides on the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus. A premier, 21st Century high-technology learning and research institute, PKI is home to approximately 1,900 undergraduate and graduate students and 110 faculty from two University of Nebraska colleges: University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s College of Engineering and University of Nebraska at Omaha’s College of Information Science and Technology.
