  • Nebraska's Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FAARP) processes 50,000 samples annually from test kits to help companies detect undeclared traces of food allergens—including peanut, milk, egg, almond, hazelnut, coconut, soybean, sesame and shrimp—in food processing facilities to keep consumers safe.

    “I’m really proud of FARRP’s impact,” founder Steve Taylor said. “The food industry is doing a much better job in allergen control and labeling. There’s still more work to be done, but we’ve made a difference.” ›› http://ow.ly/Rsmo50vAsyk

  • Thanks to support from the Peter Kiewit Foundation, the Nebraska College Preparatory Academy is strengthening its programming to help first-generation and low-income students achieve academic success and attend college. “As a land-grant institution, UNL is committed to preparing first-generation, low-income students with the tools to achieve personal and professional excellence. NCPA is a testament of this commitment,” said Amber Williams, assistant vice chancellor for academic services and enrollment management. “The academy is uniquely positioned, allowing program staff to leverage their understanding of admissions and student success to prepare scholars to thrive on campus.”

    This new funding will allow NCPA to develop a new peer coaching program and professional development, create a Pathways Program to provide academy students with a better understanding of careers, global engagement or service learning, and more. ›› http://ow.ly/6NXJ50vd3MF

  • Honors student Lauren Mott channeled her passion for teaching by creating after-school college readiness curriculum for 4th through 8th-graders across Nebraska. “The hope is not to give them content knowledge, because school does that,” Mott said. “Instead, I’m really hoping that students just have fun, make relationships and have a little spark of interest in something.” ›› http://ow.ly/Wqdb50voiZt

  • The university has been named the “Greatest Growth Institution” by the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program! ✨ This program supports underrepresented students and aims to encourage them to study and intern in other countries. “The Gilman scholarships are important because they expand study abroad opportunities to students who normally would not have the funds available or the knowledge on how to make international travel possible,” said Laura Damuth, director of national and international fellowships. “It’s a gateway scholarship that can increase aspirations in terms of fellowship opportunities and educational possibilities.” ›› http://ow.ly/Soe550vjGT0

  • Everyone has something they're passionate about. For associate professor Tom Weissling, that something happens to be so small that most people don't even notice it during their day-to-day lives: bugs.

    Though he's now an associate professor of entomology, Tom didn't always have a keen interest in insects. In fact, during undergrad he took his first entomology class only because he was interested in fly fishing. Three degrees in entomology later, Tom can thank his hobby for helping him find his passion.

    Most of Tom's appointment as professor is focused on teaching. While he teaches higher-level entomology courses to students in the program, he's also taught introductory-level insect biology classes to students of all academic majors. In those courses he uses his enthusiasm for the subject to show students all the great things insects can do, like pollinating and breaking down dead plant material. Many students start the course with an aversion to bugs, but by the end they leave it knowing all the good insects do. "Even if you just reach one person every now and then, that's a huge win for me."
