Advocacy Day
Craig Chandler | University Communications
University of Nebraska students, supporters and alumni talk to state senators in the Rotunda Gallery during "I Love NU" Advocacy Day 2019 at the Nebraska State Capitol.

An "I Love NU" advocacy event will be 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. March 10 at the Nebraska State Capitol.

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. The event is also open to the public. Individuals who plan to attend can RSVP.

A complete schedule is available on Facebook. The event will include "University Unity" ice cream created by the Dairy Store. It will be for sale outside the capitol on the day of the event.

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 NU Advocate;

  • following the University of Nebraska on 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.
