The UNO Criss Library is currently hosting an exhibit by photographer Ophir Palmon. The exhibit, "Future, Beware!," is a collection of images taken as part of a larger project to examine the Holocaust through the eyes of Jewish-American teens. UNO and the Council for Holocaust and Genocide Studies are sponsoring the exhibit.
Horrible school shootings such as the Columbine, Virginia Tech, or Sandy Hook events lead to heightened concern about the safety and security of the places where we spend our time. These events are devastating, but fortunately are less common than many other crimes and emergencies. Tornadoes, winter storms, chemical spills, fires and others are all potential threats, but UNO's Campus Security and Crisis Management Team have plans to address each. They are all available online and are worth being aware of as the new semester begins.
