University of Nebraska at Omaha. Alumni Association


The University of Nebraska at Omaha Alumni Association was founded in 1913 as the University of Omaha Alumni Association. All UNO and OU graduates are automatically members of the Alumni Association, although payment of dues is required to obtain certain benefits. The Alumni Association works to benefit the UNO campus and community.

On January 1, 2016, the UNO Alumni Association integrated with the University of Nebraska Foundation, by a strategic agreeement with a term of five years. The UNO Alumni Association continued to operate as a separate nonprofit organization, with many key operations combined with the NU Foundation.
