Welcome to Nebraska SSN

Workshop

Nebraska SSN OpEd Writing Workshop

About the chapter

Nebraska SSN was launched in 2020 with a group of interdisciplinary and civically engaged scholars and leaders from colleges and universities across the state. Through partnerships between scholars, the media, policymakers, and civic leaders, we seek to contribute to more effective and equitable policymaking. Particular areas of interest include social policy, immigration, poverty and inequality, civic engagement, and governance at the local, state, and national levels.
