Economic Sufficiency is one of the mission categories in the Community Partnership Initiative. Community partners and projects with the mission of Economic Sufficiency work to address the causes, consequences, and solutions to poverty, with a special focus on meeting the economic needs of those affected by poverty.
UNO has more than 50 partnerships with community organizations that address issues related to economic sufficiency and has identified over 60 projects that make an economic impact on the community.
One of these projects was carried out by College of Business Administration student Adrienne Cavill. She created a financial literacy program for the Marrs Magnet Middle School. Adrienne planned and developed the curriculum for each grade level, while also helping teach the classes.
Behind each partnership and project, there is an impactful story - demonstrating the power of collaboration in transforming communities. Click here for the list of Economic Sufficiency projects.
In 2014, UNO received the Presidential Award for the Economic Opportunity category. This is the highest level of recognition in the Honor Roll.
