While not everyone is thinking actively about how they are advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals every day when they do their work, many individuals across the University of Nebraska community are doing so. We’ll hear from students advancing the SDGs in their work with their peers, administrators, and the campus at large; how the goals are being advanced in the Lincoln community *and* the classroom (sometimes at the same time); and about cutting edge research happening both in Nebraska and with collaborators around the world. Ultimately, it’s important to frame our work within the larger challenges of the SDGs and galvanize everyone in the community, no matter their position, to take action towards these goals, too.
