The 2019-2020 academic year has been unlike any other. Catch the highlights from another successful year within the UNO College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS).
Message from the Dean
CPACS is the only college of public affairs in Nebraska. No other institution provides the linkage between the talent of higher education and dynamic public and nonprofit organizations. The professions we serve – public, nonprofit, and some private – benefit not only from our talented graduates, but also from the applied courses that engage students in crafting solutions to the challenges our partners face. And we have four research institutes that work on contracts and grants with community partners to address specific problems they face. In turn, we benefit from being able to attract students and faculty who want the opportunities to be fully engaged in the community.
Our work forms a strong, dynamic ever-changing web that wraps around the community. Whether it is providing the Legislature long-term policy options, bringing to light the scourge of modern day slavery of human trafficking, or helping a nonprofit evaluate and improve a program, we walk with our community partners towards the goal of a community that is safer, more resilient and more just.
