Community Engagement & Educational Outreach

Community Engagement and Educational Outreach is a key component that sets NET apart from its commercial television and radio counterparts. Community Engagement and Educational Outreach extends the impact of NET’s television and radio broadcasts by providing access to educational materials and collaborative activities. Efforts are always in partnership with other community organizations and are designed to connect viewers and listeners to statewide service resources, foster community participation, and raise awareness about issues affecting Nebraskans.

To our Patrons and Partners of NET’s Coffee and Conversation Series

For the past two years, NET and the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center have partnered to bring Coffee and Conversation to the Lincoln community.  Recently we were informed of the Ross’ decision to terminate the relationship.  This decision caught us by surprise and has resulted in the cancellation of the first half of the series.

We believe that Coffee and Conversation provides the community with a unique opportunity to screen topical films that promote cultural diversity and civil discourse on differing points of view; and after thirteen years we are committed to securing another venue.

We are of course deeply disappointed by the timing and nature of this decision and regret that it has caused such disruption; however it is our intent to reprise the series in 2015.
