2012-13 Academy Class Unveiled
The UNO Alumni Association has selected 30 alumni for membership in the 2012-13 Young Alumni Academy.
The award-winning program was founded in 2010 to facilitate networking and professional growth among alumni under 40. More than 60 young alumni have participated in the academy since, getting an insider’s view into the administration of UNO. Sessions are held at unique locations on and off campus, and UNO leaders address members on topics such as athletics management, student focus and community engagement.
In June, CASE’s International Circle of Excellence awards program recognized the academy with a Silver Award for New Program Initiatives — the top award in its category and the Association's first-ever International Circle of Excellence honor. CASE — the Council for Advancement and Support of Education — is one of the largest international associations of education institutions, serving more than 3,400 universities, colleges, schools and related organizations in 74 countries.
The Academy also received a gold award for special group programming during the CASE District VI Conference in Denver in January.
The third UNO Young Alumni Academy begins Oct. 25 and continues through April. Members of the 2012-13 Academy class are listed below with year of graduation and place of employment. Congratulations Academy members!
