Domestic violence is defined by Nebraska Law as abuse that occurs between spouses, persons living as spouses, or adult members of the same household.

We work with integrity to fulfill the mission of higher education and strive for excellence while forever carrying the banner of UNL.
Still, on our journeys toward becoming the best versions of ourselves, we learn from the mistakes we make.
Domestic violence can happen to anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender.
It can happen between couples who are married, living together or who are dating.
