We can all use new sources of inspiration when it comes to working toward greater sustainability. You can find them in this blog, where we profile some of the many people in the UNL community who make smart choices about the resources they use where they live, work and play.

Hello! My name is Kjersten and I’m junior Environmental Studies major, with a focus on Indigenous Natural Resource Law & Policy. I began working with the Office of Sustainability last summer and have enjoyed being a part of sustainability initiatives and efforts on campus with this fantastic team of people!

UNL Wildlife Club’s mission is to provide guidance and further knowledge about specific wildlife, promote and stimulate interest in wildlife, provide cultural and social development of members, provide opportunities in leadership, increase cooperation with organizations concerned with wildlife, and acquaint interested students and faculty members with the wildlife field.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Right at UNL

Thursday, January 27, 2022

Not many people likely give much thought to the waste they produce or what happens to it after it leaves their possession. However, this is a very important topic that our UNL Recycling and Sustainability teams are working to elevate and integrate into the campus culture.

Designed by Me for You

Wednesday, December 1, 2021

It’s been almost a year and a half since I started as the graphic design intern for the Office of Sustainability. It feels like it’s only been a couple of months, but I guess the saying is true, time does fly when you’re having fun. Looking back at all of the work that I’ve done with the office, I am eternally grateful at the opportunities to not only grow as a person and designer but to help my community.
