Women's & Gender Studies sponsors an Annual Lecture in which local and national scholars present their research. Because of the personalized nature of our program, students have an opportunity to interact with these scholars both formally and informally. The colloquium series often features student research and gives students the chance to share their work.
Since 1994, Women's & Gender Studies has also hosted No Limits, an interdisciplinary student conference on issues related to women, gender, and sexuality. Sponsored annually by the Women's and Gender Studies Programs at UNO, UNK and UNL, it is held in early March and rotates between the 3 campuses at Lincoln, Kearney, and Omaha. No Limits a uniquely interdisciplinary student conference that accommodates both traditional and non-traditional topics and presentations. For over twenty-five years, the conference has remained student-oriented, open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates.
