Foster a partnership to engage and connect with the UNO community. We invite nonprofits and other organizations to build collaborative partnerships with our university. Student volunteers have the opportunity to learn more about current social issues and how your organization meets the needs of the community. Join the Office of Civic and Social Responsibility by engaging students in service projects that benefit the community and support your organization’s mission and cause. Here are some programs to partner inside the Office of Civic and Social Responsibility.
UNO sponsors days of service to give UNO Community volunteers a chance to engage in service projects around the community, with different days addressing different social issues. All Signature Service Days are held at UNO's Community Engagement Center and are from 8:30 A.M. - 2:00 P.M. UNO provides free shuttle services to the project sites, breakfast, and lunch to volunteers. We accept any project that the average group of high-spirited, civic-minded people can complete in a day's work. If you can dream it (and provide the supplies), we can do it! Each Signature Service Day has a different social issue theme and organizations led by or servicing those related to the theme will be given priority for event participation. To partner, please complete the Request For Project form for the specific Signature Service Day and email it to email@example.com.
We will be hosting monthly service opportunities in our office on the first Wednesday of the month from 12:00 P.M. - 1:00 P.M. during the academic year. These sessions will be dedicated to service with the Omaha community. We are currently looking for fulfilling and enriching projects from your organization to lead. We would like these projects to have the ability to be completed in an hour that will help your organization make an impact in your community. To partner, please fill out this form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Learning happens everywhere. The Collaborative is a co-curricular program designed to give students an opportunity to gain transferable job skills. These skills are highly valued within the professional world and therefore are great additions to your resume. While UNO students are improving their leadership, intercultural, social, and emotional competencies, they are simultaneously affecting positive social change in the Omaha Metro Area. This program aims to help students and nonprofit organizations come together to create service projects that address one or more of the current social issue areas affecting our community during the academic year.

Looking for volunteers? We'll happily post service opportunities. We can help your organization recruit volunteers for special events, ongoing service opportunities, or to assist with your service projects. The UNOServe email is sent on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month during the academic year. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
