Ten students from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) University Honors Program represented UNO at the Upper Midwest Regional Honors Conference early April 2019.
The three day event was held on the University of Wisconsin-Stout campus in Menomonie, WI as part of the regional efforts of the National Collegiate Honors Council. The conference theme "Embracing Failure" encouraged participants to celebrate projects, theories, experiments, and creative works that did not turn out as we expected.
Students representing the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Education, College of Public Affairs and Community Service as well as the College of Information Science and Technology presented posters and ran informational sessions. During those sessions, each of the students told attendees about their community engagement experiences in Omaha along with original research and how it has impacted their academic careers.
