Legislative candidate Matt Deaver, running for the District 10 seat in the Nebraska Legislature, recently toured the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
He visited Ronald W. and Lois G. Roskens Hall, home to UNO’s College of Education.
Deaver was impressed with the multiple science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) opportunities provided by UNO and said it's important students know they can find them right here in Omaha.
“Involving our state’s K-12 students in STEM activities and making them aware of the STEM opportunities UNO provides, I think are the next steps in growing this fantastic program.”
He continued, “I really appreciated the chance to see firsthand the growth and opportunities this campus has undertaken. I look forward to working with the University and its leaders to keep that momentum going.”
Aside from UNO’s STEM programs, Deaver also had the chance to meet with Catherine Lang, Assistant Dean and State Director for the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC).
NBDC, which functions out of UNO’s Mammel Hall, helps strengthen Nebraska businesses for a healthy economy and prosperous communities.
Deaver's opponent in the legislative district race is taking part in a campus visit on Aug. 6.
All government officials and legislative candidates are welcome to visit campus to better understand UNO, our impact on the state and faculty's varied areas of expertise. Contact UNO University Communications at email@example.com to schedule your visit.
