Empowering Future Leaders
Fostering Inclusive Communities
Creating Innovative Solutions

Located on two campuses (UNO and UNL), the College of Public Affairs and Community Service (CPACS) was created to offer academic programs to prepare graduates to meet the critical social needs of our community and state. Our certificate and degree programs will prepare you to be a leader, a mover and shaker, and a change maker. Our community and outreach programs and partnerships provide opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to actively engage with the community.
