A brief summary of papers, guides, presentations, and other resources the institution has developed to share their sustainability experience with other institutions:

UNO has worked with other University of Nebraska campuses (UNL, UNK, UNMC) to develop a not-yet-approved U-wide Sustainability Policy.

UNO also participates with several other local and regional universities in the Midlands Sustainability Forum (moderated by our friends at Creighton U).

Although UNO is host to the Center for Urban Sustainability, we have participation also from Metropolitan Community College, Creighton University, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

The names of local, state/provincial, regional, national, or international campus sustainability organizations or consortia in which the institution participates and/or is a member:

Midlands Sustainability Forum

A brief summary of additional ways the institution collaborates with other campuses to advance sustainability :

Recently, a panel discussion was held for the Nebraska Chapter of the Sierra Club, in which Creighton University, Metropolitan Community College and the University of Nebraska at Omaha all shared our Sustainability programs, projects and progress, including those we had worked on collaboratively. By so doing, we not only grow sustainability on our own campuses, we create opportunities for further cross-pollination.
