This year's Showcase is going virtual, with the theme: Maverick Strong: The Impact of Innovation, Collaboration, and Meaningful Service.
This year the UNO Service Learning Academy (SLA) is highlighting the various ways in which people have worked together to create innovative, collaborative, and meaningful service learning experiences. These experiences have also positively influenced students’ educational journeys and advanced community-building efforts in the Omaha metropolitan area.
The annual showcase is open for anyone to RSVP to attend. Proposal participation varies each year. Please review the proposal submission details below.
