Education and Enrichment
4-Year Tiered Programming
Understanding each student has a unique and individualized path to success, the 4-year tiered programming aims to meet student-athletes where they are in their development and provide them with opportunities to sharpen and grow as professionals and individuals.
Note: The 4-Year Tiered model and Summer Bridge series will replace content previously addressed in the Sunday night required Husker Life Seminar.
Student-athletes are prominent members of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus community. Because of this, the athletic department is often approached by various presenters and organizations. Life Skills will periodically make coaches and student-athletes aware of voluntary opportunities across campus or hosted by athletics. Attendance will count for Tom Osborne Citizenship Team recognition. Student-athletes are encouraged to integrate with the many excellent enrichment presentations scheduled throughout the year to further overall development and enhance success.
Every team and student-athlete has unique and specific needs. These meetings are designed to supplement annual Life Skills programming to ensure each coaching staff feels adequately supported in the development of their student-athletes. This will enhance team culture, character development, and overall success in all areas of life.
Summer Bridge is a program for incoming first-year or transfer students, providing support and proactive education fostering the acclimation to the University of Nebraska. The series is designed to facilitate a successful transition to college life, educate on critical life skills, foster preparation for life after sport, and meet other student-athletes, athletic staff, and campus partners.
