Legislative candidate Mina Davis running for the District 8 seat in the Nebraska Legislature, recently toured the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
During her time on campus, Davis visited the visited Roskens Hall, home to UNO's College of Education before she made a stop at the College of Public Affairs and Community Service to meet with public administration faculty.
Being a data scientist and a young entrepreneur, Davis knows the importance of education, especially STEM education, among not only the young people of Nebraska, but businesses as well.
"There are people in the industry that don't understand what universities can do or how they go about determining curriculum and the fact that UNO is in collaboration with so many different people in both the business and education communities; it's really encouraging to know."
While touring, Davis had the opportunity to take a look inside of one of UNO's STEM labs and learn about the work behind what many of the students and faculty on campus are doing to promote the importance of STEM research and creative activity.
Davis' opponent in the Legislative District 8 race took part in a campus visit on August 29.
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.
