Ways You Can Help

The community of Loper alumni and constituents are an integral part of our success. Students often connect with alumni for internships, job opportunities, mentoring, networking and more.

Now, we’re adding “influencer” to your role. You can help us grow through your outreach efforts to prospective students. You will paint the region blue and gold and shine a bright spotlight on the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

“I always knew that I wanted to go into the teaching profession. There is nothing more rewarding than trying to pass on my love for being physically active to kids of all ages. The classes that I took helped shape me into my teaching style that I adopted. UNK does a great job of getting us into classrooms from our first years. I absolutely loved the teachers that I had the opportunity to learn from. I felt confident leaving UNK that I would be able to give my best.”
