An "I Love NU" Advocacy Day will be at the Nebraska State Capitol from 9 a.m. to noon March 27.
The event is open to anyone — including students, faculty, staff and alumni — wishing to show support for the University of Nebraska. Participants will be able to visit and speak with senators and share their NU stories.
A complete schedule is available on NU Advocacy Day's Facebook page.
Faculty and staff who attend the event during regular work hours should use vacation or banked/floating holiday time and must receive approval for time off from a supervisor.
Besides attending the "I Love NU" Advocacy Day, faculty, staff and students can also show support for the university by:
- reaching out to their senator via letter, email or phone to discuss why higher education is important;
- watching for action alerts by signing up to be an Facebook and Twitter for news and updates;
- sharing their story on social media using the #NUforNE hashtag; and
- checking out the latest NU Advocate news and events.
