The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and Union Pacific recently announced a partnership which allows UP employees to register for fall courses without out-of-pocket tuition costs.

The partnership provides access to all of UNO’s programs, and UP employees will continue to work while pursuing degrees via courses on campus, online and in remote classrooms.

“UNO is helping us empower employees by removing financial and scheduling barriers that can discourage people from pursuing higher education,” said Beth Whited, UP EVP and Chief HR Officer. “We are proud to support our employees’ professional growth through UNO’s nationally-recognized education programs, which will lead to exciting career advancement opportunities in the future.”

“UNO is ‘Omaha’s campus,’ and is committed to workforce development for the betterment of Nebraskans as well as Nebraska-based corporations that contribute to the vitality of our community,” says UNO Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D. “A core part of our mission is the kind of life-long learning that UP is fostering for its employees.”
