The UNO Staff Advisory Council (SAC) was established in 1973 to promote and facilitate communications between the Managerial/Professional employees and the Office/Service employees with the chancellor.
Membership on SAC is an elected position. The individuals listed below have been nominated and agree to serve, if elected, on SAC for a three-year term beginning May 2013. Their eligibility has been verified by Human Resources.
According to the Staff Advisory Council's bylaws, there must be a balanced distribution of representation from all areas of the campus.
Salvation Army Back to School Backpack Program
The Staff Advisory Council of UNO is working with Creighton, College of St. Mary, UNMC and UNMC College of Nursing, Bellevue University and the Salvation Army to provide children in need with school supplies. UNO is collecting rulers now through May 24, 2013. Rulers can be purchased at the Bookstore at a price of 3 for $1.00. Our goal is to collect 2,000 rulers.
Since its inception in 1998, the Back-to-School Backpack Program has provided over 109,000 children with the supplies they need for school. Without those supplies, many of those students would have found their quality of education greatly challenged. Without those supplies, some of those children might have dropped out of school altogether. We hope that this program will help prevent children from being discouraged with or from walking away from education all together. While this program has helped over 109,00 children already, the need continues to grow.
Please consider helping with this worthy cause. We KNOW the value of a good education. Let us help make certain that these children will have the opportunity to get that education they deserve.
So take advantage of the nice weather and walk over to the Bookstore and buy some rulers. The rulers can be donated right at the checkout stand in the Bookstore. Your purchase is tax deductible.
If you have any questions, please contact your SAC representative or Kim Kronschnabel at X4-3497
