High School Alliance recognized as a premiere pipeline program

The Association of Academic Medical Centers is featuring the UNMC High School Alliance on its website as an example of academic health center best practices.

The alliance is featured as one in a series of case studies on successful pipleine programs being showcased on the organization's Sullivan Alliance web page.

The AAHC Sullivan Alliance aims to strengthen the capacity and quality of the nation’s health workforce by increasing the numbers of ethnic and racial minorities in every area of health care and across all aspects of academic health centers.

Hours temporarily reduced at the C-store

Staffing constraints require Food and Nutrition Services to temporarily reduce the operating hours of the C-store, located on level three of University Tower. Beginning Saturday, Sept. 18, the revised hours will be in effect:

  • Weekends 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Monday through Friday 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

"We kindly ask for your patience as we work to find solutions," said Tom Hoffman, director, Food and Nutrition. "We do not anticipate the reduced hours to be in place long term."

Dunkin' closing early today, next week 

Due to staffing issues, Dunkin’ will close at 3 p.m. today and each weekday next week. Management plans to resume full hours later this month once several individuals are trained.
