Since 2001, the annual Nebraska Cultural Unity Conference (NCUC) at the University of Nebraska at Kearney aims to promote cultural diversity in higher education. The planning for the Nebraska Cultural Unity Conference is a year long, and the planning committee is comprised of student leaders dedicated to organizing, and executing a phenomenal conference agenda.
The Nebraska Cultural Unity Conference is a daylong event full of learning opportunities to engage over 350 high school students. Through a series of workshops, discussions, and motivational speakers UNK hopes to recruit and inspire high school students from various areas of the state, to consider and commit to a college or university-level education.
The goal of the conference is to inspire these students and to inform them that the obstacles they may face can be overcome and that they have the potential to become college graduates.
High school students from all backgrounds and schools are invited. Please contact Jenny Holen ( 308-865-8127) if you wish to receive a registration packet.
