Office of Engagement

We exist to connect UNO’s “Maverick Spirit”- the abundant knowledge, talent, and energy found on our campus – to the toughest problems, common interests, and untapped potential of the communities we serve. As a Metropolitan University, meaningful and impactful community engagement and partnerships are central to UNO’s mission. The Office of Engagement is a bridge between our faculty, staff, students, and campus units to individuals, families, and neighborhoods, as well as the business, government, educational and nonprofit sectors.

In accordance with their mission, UNO is committed to community engagement. UNO defines community engagement as collaboration between the University and its local, regional, national, and global communities for the exchange of knowledge and resources. As an engaged campus, UNO is fully committed to creating value through mutually beneficial partnerships where information and expertise is shared and applied for the common good.
