Thanks to the many contributors to the Emeriti In Action exhibit. The arrangement of materials demonstrates the diversity of faculty and the activities that have been pursued since attaining Emeriti status. Themes evident throughout the display include volunteerism at UNL or in the broader community, continuing research, history projects, and artistic/craft work. These are some of the ways members of the UNL Emeriti have remained in action.
