Community service

UNO student Zoe Miller receives 2022 Marian Ivers Community Service Leadership Award | Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center

Zoe’s dedication to community service began in high school, serving in the Methodist Hospital’s Volunteen program, which engaged high school students interested in health care.

Since then, she has volunteered for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Nebraska and Women who Run Nebraska and interned at the Nebraska Civic Engagement Table. She is a member of the Emerging Leaders Circle with the Women’s Fund of Omaha and Urban Abbey and is currently President of the UNO Public Health Student Association.

Her involvement with the UN Women & Gender Equity Center (WGEC) led her to her current role as co-director of the organization. The function of the WGEC is to promote well-being and gender equality in the UN community through campus events, outreach and initiatives. As Co-Director, she helped solidify the partnership with Maverick Food Pantry through the Essential Supply Program, a program that provides free sexual, menstrual, and parental health supplies to any UNO student.

Zoe is also the Social Media Director for Sustain UNO, which focuses on implementing sustainable initiatives and programs on campus. She is involved with the Chancellor’s Sustainability Committee, the Engagement Subcommittee, and the President’s Sustainability Council of the University System of Nebraska. She led a movement at the UN for sustainability to prevail on campus.

Zoe enjoys volunteering her services at the UN campus to grow in the areas of public health, sustainability and gender equity. In the future, she wants to be involved in community development regarding reproductive health and justice. She wants to make a difference in the community and, like Marian Ivers, is an agent of change for women and girls.
