Faculty Commons

Faculty Commons includes resources and experts ready to help UNMC faculty succeed.

Discover. Collaborate. Recharge.

Faculty Commons is a dedicated space for faculty members where they can test ideas, ask questions, check out resources, become inspired, or focus on writing and teaching projects — plus, the area offers an inviting atmosphere to engage with colleagues over coffee or have a quiet place to work away from your normal area.

Located on the main floor of the Leon S. McGoogan Health Sciences Library, Faculty Commons is a safe space for all UNMC faculty, including clinical providers at Nebraska Medicine, Children's Nebraska, emeritus faculty, visiting faculty and faculty from other institutions who have joint appointments at UNMC.
