Our goal is to help those in the Lincoln community who are less fortunate. We have a special interest in children and families, and have a national theme of speech and hearing health. We meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month with a guest speaker presenting on timely, informative, and provocative topics. Meetings are held from 7:00 to 8:00 AM with coffee and breakfast available for a nominal charge at the Selleck Quadrangle Residence Hall dining room, 600 N. 15th Street, Lincoln, NE, on the UNL campus. In addition, we hold multiple social and special events throughout the year at various times and locations.
Visitors are always welcome at our morning meetings and all of our events!
Our Purpose . . .“Sertoma exists for the high and noble purpose of Service to Mankind by communication of thoughts, ideas and concepts to accelerate human progress in health, education, freedom and democracy.”
University Sertoma is one of seven Sertoma clubs in Lincoln. Chartered in April 1988, our members represent a cross section of business, industry, government agencies, and non-profit organizations, as well as University employees. Our club offers service to the Lincoln area and its residents, while providing our members an opportunity to maintain and expand individual and community contacts. Our club offers camaraderie, life-long friendships, personal growth, and opportunities for networking, while making a real difference in our community.
International Affiliation . . .Sertoma Inc. is headquartered in Kansas City, MO, and serves as our parent organization. Founded in 1912, Sertoma is a not-for-profit international organization with 10,000-plus members in more than 430 clubs across Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the United States. Every year Sertoma clubs raise more than $20 million for local community service projects. Through these projects, as well as grants and scholarships, Sertoma clubs return those funds to their respective communities while building life-long friendships.
