As we are faced with challenges, whether they be personal, professional, social, or economic, it can oftentimes feel like we are alone or that we lack the resources to deal with feelings of stress, anxiety, fear, and overall wellness.
This is why, throughout the year, the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) provides important resources for students, faculty, and staff. We encourage Mavericks to "Connect. Take Care. Get Help" at any time they need help and support.
If you, or someone you know, is looking for support or ways to share their thoughts, feelings, and questions, the UNO campus community stands ready to help.
Do not hesitate to reach out to any of the following campus resources, if needed:
Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides services that can assist students with challenges that have impacted their overall wellbeing. These resources include short-term counseling, group counseling, emergency services, and more. A full list of these services including crisis contact information can be found on the CAPS website.
CAPS is continuing to offer counseling services remotely during campus operations impacted related to COVID-19.
Please remember that students have access to a mental health professional after hours, on weekends, and holidays by contacting 402.554.2409 and pressing #2.
Faculty and Staff Employee Assistance Program
The Faculty and Staff Employee Assistance Program (FSEAP) provides confidential counseling and referral services to benefit-eligible faculty and staff and their eligible dependents. The program also publishes articles with important updates and information.
The Ombuds staff assists students, faculty, and staff members with informal conflict resolution and problem-solving, navigating difficult situations, and advocacy for fair processes and fair treatment. If you have a concern, the university Ombuds are here to help.
The Office of Multicultural Affairs collaborates with UNO and the greater Omaha community to share understanding and knowledge, cultivate meaningful relationships, and develop an appreciation for all perspectives.
Our office motto is "Supporting Everyone" and we want to ensure each person feels safe and connected. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. A Multicultural Affairs staff member will then reach out to schedule a Zoom appointment with you.
