Weitz CEC Values
We welcome our collaborating partners on our campus as equal contributors to the betterment of our campus, city, and the world.
We actively seek to represent the many diverse ideas, backgrounds, and cultures that comprise Omaha and the university community.
Civil and Open Dialogue
The Weitz CEC is a space where all opinions can be heard, and different ideas are not only respected, but encouraged because diversity of thought fosters innovation and creativity.
Our community faces complex social problems that require unique and novel solutions. The Weitz CEC strives to cultivate a collaborative environment, in which people are willing to organically develop creative strategies and partnerships for solving such issues.
The partnerships crafted as a result of being in the Weitz CEC should not be forced, but rather a product of revealing shared goals and a willingness to build alliances between university and community partners.
We encourage thoughtful, respectful, and transparent communication between all individuals who use the Weitz CEC including community partners, faculty, staff, and students.
The Weitz CEC is considered a portal through which the community and the university can exchange resources, ideas, and solutions. Through reciprocal relationships, in which goals and expectations are clearly stated and fulfilled, community and UNO organizations interact with and benefit from each other.
A Welcoming Atmosphere
We value everyone who uses the building, and show that by creating an environment that is clean, easy to access, filled with friendly faces, comfortable for all, and meets people’s physical needs.
Basing decisions for improvement on direct feedback and concrete data ensures that organizations can continue having positive impacts on the community.
The Weitz CEC leadership hopes that community and university partners will grow in many different ways, but mostly that all partners will be better equipped to serve the Omaha community as a result of being in the Weitz CEC.
