The lights do look nice. Lets hope they keep the lights working or it soon will look like |expletive|. It does make you wonder though, when colleges are having such a hard time with their budgets, why they waste their money adding pretty lights to a parking structure. On top of that, there's the cost involved in maintaining the lights.

Hopefully the LED lights won't need much maintenance, but it does stand to question why they would dress up a parking garage.

The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s biomechanics program has become a powerhouse, and it will be rewarded with a lot more space.

The NU Board of Regents on Friday approved a plan to build a large addition to the three-level Biomechanics Research Building, which was erected four years ago.

The regents expect construction on the addition to start in April and to be completed in September 2019, more than doubling the size of the existing building. The $11.6 million addition is to be privately funded.

From a NextDoor string: "UNO is planning on taking out another huge parking lot and a set of dorms within the next couple of years. That will seriously affect parking in all surrounding areas (neighborhoods & parks). The goal of the school is "20 by 2020". So that's 20,000 students by 2020. And the new academic building that will be build between DSH and the TLC Alum Center will be where it's located." Is this true?

The location for the building doesn't match anything I've seen in UNO's 2014 Master Plan, nor anything I've heard from my connections at the university. Last I knew, Allwine Hall was due to be torn down next and replaced with a modern dorm building, following the completion of the Performing Arts building expansion. Given all of the significant changes to Scott Campus development that weren't on the 2014 plan, I suppose I wouldn't be surprised if UNO revised their plans for North Campus.

NARI will be housed here... Nebraska Applied Research Institute.


I don't know if this is good news, but NARI is putting $150k into their Scott Tech location.
Ahead of their move into First Data...

Impressive partnership with the Department of Defense for the university.

https://www.unomaha.edu/college-of-information-science-and-technology/news/2017/12/dpaa-ist-partnership.php

The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) today announced a partnership with the United States Department of Defense to help streamline the process, and increase the accuracy of, identifying the skeletal remains of fallen soldiers.

The partnership brings together faculty from UNO’s College of Information Science and Technology (IS&T) and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA). A formal agreement to launch the project was finalized with a visit by the new director of the DPAA, Kelly McKeague, to Offutt Air Force Base to meet IS&T officials including IS&T Dean Hesham Ali, Ph.D., and Sachin Pawaskar, Ph.D., a senior research technology fellow at IS&T, on Tuesday, Dec. 5.

“We’re incredibly honored to be working with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency and to help bring closure to the families of the fallen soldiers,” Ali said. “We are able to develop solutions based on advanced bioinformatics algorithms, which will augment DPAA’s established process of identifying skeletal remains. It is our hope that this work will represent a new and innovative tool in forensic anthropology and help the broader scientific community with potential use in similar cases on a global scale.”
