Dedicated to Excellence…
With the addition to the School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation and the repurposing and move to Roskens Hall, the UNO College of Education has many exciting transformations underway. These magnificent facilities inspire us to even greater achievement and success. Our new learning spaces feature the latest technology that supports dynamic school settings, cutting-edge clinics and collaboration rooms for students and community partners.
We are growing, changing, and providing leadership in our communities. Not only are we moving forward with state-of-the-art learning environments, we are also developing learning opportunities that place students at the center, engaging in world-class research and creative activity, and actively collaborating with the community.
The College of Education prepares the majority of teachers and administrators in Omaha and many throughout the state, but our reach extends well beyond our campus. We are making a difference in laboratories with research benefiting individuals struggling with neuromuscular control, in the community through partnerships, in clinics serving the elderly and in the lives of children with learning disabilities. The principal benefactors for the Roskens repurposing, Ruth and Bill Scott and Dr. George and Sally Haddix, share our commitment to investing in our students, which is an investment in the thousands of lives these individuals will touch throughout their careers.
I would also like to recognize the building's namesakes, Dr. Ronald and Lois Roskens, whose example set a course of excellence for the college. And a very special thank you to the family of my predecessor and friend, Dr. John Langan. His wisdom and leadership positioned the college for great success.
We are always happy to share information about our people and programs, and we invite you to visit us at any time, online or in person.
Nancy A. Edick, Dean
