With so many community engagement opportunities and resources available on our campus, it's hard to know where to find them.
Whether you're a student seeking volunteer opportunities, a faculty member looking for resources to support engaged research or teaching, a nonprofit seeking interns and volunteers, or a community member looking for non-credit/professional education or information about public events, the Community Engagement Roadmap is a new tool to find these resources and connect.
Who is the Roadmap for?
- Community members and organizations
- Future and current UNO students
- UNO faculty and staff
What is Community Engagement?
UNO defines community engagement as "the collaboration between the University and its local, regional, national and global communities for the exchange of knowledge and resources." Community engagement and service are fundamental components of UNO's identity. This commitment to engagement is reflected in UNO's academic, student body, partnerships, and institutional framework.
UNO departments and units involved in community engagement are encouraged to add this link to their websites and to refer it to individuals seeking UNO's community engagement resources.
Are you a community member interested in public events?
Sign up for our monthly collaborative email, For Community Consideration. A partnership of public events and special interest opportunities between UNO's Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center (CEC), UNO Libraries, and the Willis A. and Janet S. Strauss Performing Arts Center (SPAC).
