HUSKER CIVIC CHALLENGE
In commemoration of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s 150th year, the Center for Civic Engagement has challenged the university community to grow its helping handprint.
The Husker Civic Challenge is encouraging students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends of the university to record more than 1.5 million service hours during 2019.

As College of Architecture students, faculty and staff civic engagement is very much a part of the fabric of who we are. We volunteer in countless ways and have such an incredible impact in communities across Nebraska and beyond. However in order to quantify our community impact the university is asking for your help in capturing that data. The university is using GivePulse, a civic service tracking website, to record service hours. Any person who wants to log hours toward the challenge can register with the site at unl.givepulse.com .

TAU SIGMA DELTA
Welcome to a brave new semester. As a college we will face refreshed challenges in the form of new classes and studios. To aid in these efforts, Tau Sigma Delta is excited to announce the re-launch of the ASK Help Desk.
The ASK help desk exists to help students realize their designs. ASK has assembled a panel of tutors who have skills ranging from digital modeling to presentation ability. The new ASK Help Desk format will directly match a volunteer tutor to a student in need of help. Tutors and students will set up a time and place to meet that is convenient for both.
 
For more information about the ASK Help Desk and the subjects it covers, please see the attached poster. If you need help from the ASK help desk, please email your question to:

COMMUNITY SERVICE OPPORTUNITIES
Nebraska Outdoor Recreation Survey Request for Participation:

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is updating the State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) and needs your help! We want to learn about the outdoor recreation resources you use, what you’d like to see expanded, and the factors that have limited your participation in outdoor recreation. The SCORP must be updated and submitted to the National Park Service every five years to maintain eligibility for Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Stateside Assistance Program funding. One important component of this plan is understanding the demand for outdoor recreation in Nebraska. To be inclusive of all demographics within the state, we’ve created this brief survey to help us understand the outdoor recreation preferences among college aged students. Your participation is vital because it will be used to help guide the Action Plan for Nebraska and set priorities for LWCF grant funding for communities planning for future outdoor recreational opportunities. Please click the link below to fill out this 5-minute survey.
