Community and Civic Engagement

INPR  occupies a visible community profile, primarily through its educational outreach efforts and international student and scholar activities. Special grant projects allow INPR to bring students and scholars to UNO or take UNO faculty, staff, and students abroad.  INPR maintains a speakers bureau for international issues and events.  The state of world affairs ensures a constant stream of requests from service clubs, elementary and secondary schools, community organizations, and businesses for UNO staff, faculty and international participants to serve as informed presenters at their meetings.

International students and scholars are hosted by Nebraska communities for visits  under the innovative Nebraska Neighbors program. International participants serve as ambassadors for UNO through presentations in local schools and service organizations. INPR hosts several State Department sponsored institutes teaching civic engagement and service learning to international students and scholars.
