This website provides a mechanism for any member of our community to report an incident of bias.
Are you feeling stressed, anxious, hopeless, isolated, or on edge? Have you noticed a friend who is feeling this way? Universities can sometimes feel big and lonely, but the fact is that many people at UNL care about your wellbeing. You don’t have to deal with stress alone!
UNL is an institutional member of the Consortium. The Consortium envisions higher education environments whereLGBTQ people, inclusive of all of our intersecting identities, are fully liberated.
The index is owned and operated by Campus Pride, the leading national nonprofit organization for student leaders and campus groups working to create safer, more LGBTQ-friendly learning environments at colleges and universities.
