Student Affairs invites the campus community to attend candidate forums as they search for a leader to oversee one of UNO’s largest student learning communities.

TRIO Project Achieve is a federally funded Student Support Services program at UNO that emphasizes the development of skills necessary for becoming a more independent learner. Students are encouraged to participate in activities that meet their needs and work with staff to better understand skills concerning their career goals.
