For Students, Faculty, and Staff
Students coming to UNO today are actively seeking service and volunteer opportunity activities. More and more frequently, employers are seeking students who can demonstrate the type of volunteer and leadership experience gained through community service.
The Weitz CEC provides a place to facilitate greater coordination, technical support, and visibility of the full range of community service-related opportunities available to students, all located within one building.
The Weitz CEC allows for multiple, coordinated approaches to inform, recruit, and support student volunteer service activities in both short-term and long-term settings.

The Weitz CEC is truly a “one-stop-shop” for community engagement at UNO.
The Weitz CEC provides expanded space for UNO’s nationally recognized Service Learning Academy (SLA). The SLA has grown from a small part-time staff to six full-time staff members and eight graduate assistants.
Meeting spaces are available to those faculty engaged in service-learning projects, as the demand for service learning courses activities continues to increase at UNO. The Weitz CEC supports SLA’s needs for meeting, forum, and community events and fair space. Often, SLA’s educational and community partners gather to meet, conduct joint planning or program activities, or celebrate at the end of the academic semester.
The Weitz CEC gives UNO faculty a place to connect with nonprofit organizations, conduct applied research with building partner organizations, and/or other UNO or community partners.
For faculty already involved with community boards, the Weitz CEC offers space for board meetings and planning activities; for those seeking opportunities with volunteer or board opportunities, the Weitz CEC has numerous avenues – via online opportunities, volunteer fairs, and face to face interactions – to connect.
If you are you interested in service-learning opportunities for your course, visit the Service Learning Academy website for more information.
UNO staff have opportunities to connect with building partner organizations, volunteer, and contribute to our community through activities going on in the Weitz CEC.
