A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:

The Student Service and Leadership Collaborative (The Collaborative) is a student-led service program that is intended to provide UNO students with opportunities to engage with community nonprofits and organizations through services projects that lead to positive social change.

The Collaborative is a co-curricular program designed to give students an opportunity to gain transferable job skills. While UNO students are improving their leadership, intercultural, social, and emotional competencies, they are simultaneously affecting positive social change in the Omaha Metro Area.

The Collaborative is organized into six community service areas: Economic Sufficiency, Educational Support, Environmental Stewardship, Health & Wellness, International Service, and Social Justice.

The Collaborative Service Manager is responsible for working with a specific non-profit organization within an identified service area. Service Managers work with one non-profit organization throughout the academic year. Each manager is supported by the assigned Collaborative Service Supervisor who oversees the non-profits within the identified service area.

In the 2015-2016 Academic Year, The Collaborative served 141 organizations in the Omaha area. In addition, they had 5,049 volunteers that served 17,122 hours that year.
