Welcome to UNMC!  You are now an integral member of a vibrant educational community of students, faculty, and staff who are committed to changing the world for the better.  We are so excited for you to join us!

As you embark on your studies, remember that one of the many reasons you will earn a world-class education at UNMC is because your learning is not bound by the walls of a classroom.  I would encourage you to augment the high-quality instruction you will receive by taking time to invest in your local community through being involved in campus organizations or volunteering at area nonprofits, by exploring our global community through international research or service trips, and by building networks of colleagues across the many academic disciplines training at our institution.  Access to these types of opportunities is what help sets UNMC students apart as future agents of change in the health care field.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any Student Senate members if there are any ways we can assist you or if you have ideas about how we can work together to make UNMC an even stronger institution.  Again, welcome to the UNMC community—we are so happy you are here!
