The last 12 months have tested and transformed our world. From far-overdue social justice reform to the fall-out from the COVID-19 pandemic, we all have been pushed to adapt and evolve.

In UNMC, regardless of your background,  you have landed at an institution where you will be valued. You will be working alongside students, faculty, and staff who not only lead in their field by pushing scientific boundaries, but also invest time in our community here in Nebraska. You will find peers who value diversity and will be present both for and with you as an emotional support. I hope, no matter your length of stay at UNMC, that you find this place to be a second home.

Please do not hesitate to let me know how UNMC's Student Senate can best support you. We are very fortunate to have you here. Welcome to UNMC.
