Building Nebraska’s civic health: Join us Feb. 4!

Wondering how you can use the Index to better your business, block,  neighborhood, community, or county? We'll take a closer look at the Civic Health Index and chart a path forward.


Five years in the making, the 2020 Nebraska Civic Health Index is a comprehensive examination of the state of Nebraska’s civic life. Charting Nebraskans’ levels of volunteerism, social connectedness, community engagement, and political involvement, the Index then offers a host of recommendations to strengthen Nebraska’s civic fabric.

Wondering how you can use the Index to better your business, block,  neighborhood, community, or county? Join us at 11 am this Thursday, Feb. 4, on Zoom for a closer look at the Civic Health Index from those who made it happen. Amanda Barker, Civic Nebraska’s deputy executive director and director of civic health programs, and Daniel Bennett, rural civic health program manager for Civic Nebraska, will lead an hourlong discussion on the Index, its indicators, and where we go from here.

 The Index is a twice-a-decade publication of Civic Nebraska, the National Conference on Citizenship, and the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center. Throughout 2020, a diverse workgroup of Nebraskans across a variety of sectors provided feedback and guidance on the Index. 

A summary of the Index’s findings and recommendations is here. The Index also includes a self-assessment and discussion guide for Nebraska communities.

We’re looking forward to the data and discussion. See you soon!
