Sara Woods, the inaugural chief engagement officer for the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will be stepping down in January 2024. Woods, the first leader of the new UNO Office of Engagement, has been a part of the Maverick community for four decades.


“As UNO’s first chief engagement officer, Sara Woods is not only a champion for UNO, but also for the community,” UNO Chancellor Joanne Li, Ph.D., CFA said. “UNO would not be the engaged, community-driven institution that it is today without her leadership, partnership, guidance, and enthusiasm. The UNO community wishes her well in her retirement, and once a Maverick, always a Maverick.”
