UNL's Character Council will host the 2013 Fall Franco's List reception at 7 p.m. Nov. 19 in the Nebraska Union auditorium. The event will feature a presentation by Bill Conley, vice president for business and finance at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Light desserts follow the presentation. The event is free and open to the public.
The reception will include students recognized by the Center for Civic Engagement for their commitment to character as defined by their peers.
Students who attain the highest level of academic achievement are traditionally recognized by their academic dean through the “Dean’s List.” Similarly, “Franco’s List” recognizes students who were nominated and selected as outstanding agents for the “Show Your Red” campaign and its six building blocks. The list is named by students for Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Juan Franco.
"Show Your Red" is about celebrating the positive characteristics that are part of being a person of integrity, demonstrating the very best qualities of a Husker. Six character traits are branded as the building blocks of integrity: caring, citizenship, commitment, dependability, open-mindedness and respect. Faculty, staff and students can acknowledge students who consistently demonstrate a commitment to living a life of honesty and strong moral character by completing the nomination form on the website http://engage.unl.edu/show-your-red.
