"No Limits" is an annual student conference dedicated to crossing boundaries between disciplines and exploring a wide range of women's and gender issues. This year's theme borrows upon the feminist slogan of the 1970s as a way to reclaim and celebrate the possibilities of dissent through both artistic expression and political activism.

This conference is co-sponsored by the UNL Women's Studies Association; the UNL, UNO, and UNK Women's (and Gender) Studies Programs; with additional contributions from The Nebraska Arts Council, Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Research Council, Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, University Program Council, Academic Senate Convocations Committee, Honors Program, The Center for Great Plains Studies, Institute for Ethnic Studies, Latino and Latin American Studies, UNL Honors Program, Departments of English, Political Science, and others.
