Faculty, staff and students all are welcome to attend the #WeAreUNMC BBQ from 3:30-6 p.m. today at the Ruth and Bill Scott Student Plaza.
“The barbecue provides us an opportunity to welcome back students and show appreciation to our faculty and staff,” said Channing Bunch, director of student life inclusion and diversity. “There will be delicious food, activities and a chance to get to know your fellow classmates and coworkers.”
UNMC IDs will be required to attend the event. Music will be provided by Complete Music, and the food stations will be provided by Sodexo. There will be backyard games and giveaways (while supplies last). All are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets.
Each year, the Office of Sustainability aims to make this event zero waste, which means that 90% of the waste created at the event is not sent to the landfill. This year, they’re striving to beat last year’s diversion rate of 71% and hit 90% again, as happened in 2019.
The event is hosted by the UNMC Student Senate and the Student Life Inclusion and Diversity Office and sponsored in part by Metro Credit Union and GreenSlate Management, in collaboration with the UNMC Department of Strategic Communications, the Office of Community Engagement, the Center for Healthy Living, the Office of Sustainability and the UNMC Bookstore.
The rain location will be in the Truhlsen Events Center on the first floor of the Sorrell Center.
