William Brennan Institute for Labor Studies
The William Brennan Institute for Labor Studies began July 1, 1980 as the result of the combined efforts of the Nebraska labor movement and the University of Nebraska. Its statewide mission is to foster creative and critical thinking among labor leaders, potential leaders, and interested members by providing relevant information and training in the skills needed in today's changing economy and workplace.
Additionally, the Institute welcomes opportunities to speak with members of the general public about the American labor movement and it's many contributions to making this a nation where everyday wage earners have a fair shot at a piece of the American Dream.
The Institute has an Advisory Committee which is composed of members of the Nebraska labor community, the Dean of the College of Public Affairs and Community Service, and the University of Nebraska Vice President for University Affairs and Director of Governmental Relations.
