I Am Goodrich
Cynthia Robinson, Ph.D. (Department Chair, UNO Black Studies) shares:
"What does the Goodrich Scholarship Program mean to me? I came to college as a non-traditional student, a young mother of four. In four years, I graduated with honors, went on to graduate school, and am today a tenured professor in the School of Communication. As a Goodrich Scholarship student, I was taught the importance of attendance, turning in assignments on time, and most importantly, how to write excellent essays and reports. As a Graduate Teaching Assistant with the Goodrich Program, I learned how to reach and teach my students, nurturing their talents while also holding them accountable. For more than two decades, I have been rocked, held, and cradled by Goodrich faculty and staff. What does the Goodrich Scholarship Program mean to me? Everything!"

"The Goodrich Program set the course for the rest of my life. It allowed me to not only be able to attend the University of Nebraska at Omaha, but also to have a welcoming Goodrich family of professors and peers that made my transition from Columbus, NE to Omaha much easier for me. I received continuous support and a high caliber education provided by Goodrich instructors in an environment that was diverse in almost every way imaginable. I will forever be grateful to the Goodrich program, and in the Goodrich family spirit, will always continue to contribute back to my community."
