Are you looking to grow your professional network, build leadership skills and meet new friends? Then the UNO Young Alumni Academy is the place to start. Founded in 2010, the UNO Young Alumni Academy generated national recognition in 2012 as best new alumni program!
More than 130 young alumni have taken part in the eight-month leadership development program, specifically designed for alumni 35 and younger.
Now, applicants are being sought for the Academy's fifth class, which begins this fall. Online applications are being accepted through July 31.
Sessions are held at unique locations on and off campus, including a behind-the-scenes tour of the CenturyLink Center and time flying in the cockpit of UNO’s Flight Simulator! UNO leaders also address members on topics such such as athletics management, student focus and community engagement. Social activities begin each session, and the program concludes with a “graduation” ceremony and reception at the Thompson Center.
The entire program is free to Academy participants. Academy graduates remain connected to the program via various activities and networking.
