Members of the Nebraska LEAD Program, a leadership development program for Nebraskans involved in agriculture, visited the Nebraska Business Development Center, the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center, the Biomechanics Research Building, and College of Information Science & Technology while at UNO.
The theme of the Omaha visit was “Agribusiness and Advances in Health Care.” The next day, the group visited UNO’s sister campus, the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
At both campuses, speakers shared how research, education, and community collaborations are strengthening Nebraska’s economy and Nebraskans’ quality of life.
For example, UNO is responsible for more than a half a billion dollars in annual state economic impact and UNO students have so far donated nearly 350,000 service hours to community organizations across the state.
LEAD program participants come from communities across Nebraska, ranging from the Sandhills to the Missouri. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources administers the program.
