While this year was certainly different than normal, there were still many ways to be involved and celebrate what it means to be a Maverick.
From our students to our faculty to our staff, Maverick Spirit can be found in our campus leaders, who help shape what the future of UNO will look like. Whether they are new to campus or moving on to new challenges, these individuals are true Mavericks.

There are many different ways to define innovation, but above all else it is the willingness to think creatively and pursue ideas that will help change the world. Mavericks change the world every day, from the classroom to the laboratory to the city of Omaha and beyond.
Mavericks are leaders. Leaders on campus, leaders in the community, and leaders in research. Even in a year of uncertainty, these individuals stood tall and were celebrated for all they were able to accomplish.
The pandemic shut down athletics around the world for much of 2020, but our student athletes, coaches, and staff didn't rest. Instead, they trained, planned, and innovated to ensure that once we could get back on the court, on the field, or on the ice we would be ready to fight, fight, fight for our Mavericks.
Staying connected to our community both on and off campus was made tougher this year, but our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and partners rose to the challenge. Our Maverick family is always growing and the connections we share continue to get stronger each day.
