UNO Young Alumni Academy


April 10 was graduation day for 2013-14 members of the UNO Young Alumni Academy. The academy is a leadership development program specifically designed for alumni 35 and younger and facilitating networking and professional growth. The group attended eight sessions held at unique locations on and off campus, including a behind-the-scenes tour of the CenturyLink Center and time flying in the cockpit of UNO’s Flight Simulator. UNO leaders also addressed members on topics such as athletics management, student focus and community engagement.

The capstone session included a tour of UNO’s 168-foot-tall Henningson Memorial Campanile followed by a "commencement" ceremony at the Thompson Center.

More than 130 young alumni have taken part in the program, which enters its fifth year in September 2014. See more about the group at http://unoalumni.org/unoyoungalumni.
