Food and Beverage Leadership Program Helps Students Pay for Room and Board | Nebraska today


Currently in its first year, the Dining Student Leadership Program is a pilot program that actively recruits up to 35 first-year students who qualify for the federal work-study program. Participants will not only gain valuable experience for other fields and professions, but will provide an essential service to the campus community.

Dining Services employs up to 250 students in a typical year to help provide essential food services on campus.

“This program is designed to help develop future student leaders, as well as help students who have the Nebraska Promise and scholarships covering tuition, also have a way to pay for their housing needs and on campus foodservice, ”said Dave Annis, director of food services.

The leadership program is offered in collaboration with DehullerWork and Sheller TO GROW – campus programs that help students relate their classroom learning to their career goals and professional development. In addition to these benefits, students who participate in the program will receive a Platinum 14/600 Meal Plan.

“We believe that a student’s experience at the University of Nebraska can be life changing,” Annis said. “We are using this program to open the doors of the university to students who would otherwise feel like they cannot afford to come to Lincoln. Once here, the opportunities for the student are endless.
