If you do not intentionally, deliberately, and proactively include, you will unintentionally exclude.

Anyone can request a presentation or workshop (UNL faculty, staff, students, or individuals and organizations beyond the campus community). We will try to fill your request although there are times when we may have limited capacity. See below for some of our popular presentations and workshops, but other topics may be available upon request. We prefer two weeks notice for all presentation requests.

Presentation length varies depending on topic. If you have questions about the length of certain presentations, please feel free to e-mail dgulley@unl.edu.
