Organization Overview

Students receiving a college scholarship from the Susan T. Buffett Foundation and attending UNO, are William H. Thompson Scholars. William H. Thompson was the father of Susan T. Buffett and served as Professor of Psychology and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Omaha University, which became UNO. The Susan T. Buffet Foundation and the University of Nebraska, beginning in 2008, are collaborating to provide Thompson Scholars a unique educational experience aimed at enhancing their academic success: participation in the Thompson Learning Community (TLC). This participation will connect you with other Thompson Scholars, with the TLC faculty, and with UNO. TLC aims to make your transition to college and your entry into a major field of study as smooth and educationally rewarding as it can be. TLC will promote your academic success through common courses, academic workshops, and connections with faculty. Additionally, your transition will be supported through your relationship with other scholars, an upper-class UNO Mentor, social programming and other opportunities for you to connect with UNO.
