East Union mASTER pLAN
university of nebraska – Lincoln


Workshop was hired to lead the Nebraska Union Redevelopment Plan, which encompassed both the Nebraska Union on the main campus and the East Union on east campus. To better align the Nebraska Unions' programmatic mix and distribution of spaces with the University of Nebraska’s core values, student affairs initiatives, and physical master plan, Workshop engaged a broad spectrum of stakeholders with a specific emphasis on student engagement. The strategic positioning process balanced resources for both campuses and led to a vision for bolder and more vibrant gathering places that would serve as a vivid introduction to the University for prospective students and visitors, play a more central role in the lives of current students and all members of the UNL family, and reflect what makes Nebraska so unique.
