The Lied Center offers University students and faculty the opportunity to connect their studies with the performing arts. The ongoing partnership with UNL School of Music, Dance Department and the Johnny Carson School of Theater and Film allows for students to attend master classes, workshops and symposia given by visiting artists.

Collaborations with student groups and campus departments surrounding Lied Center events bring the arts up-close and personal. Creating a spark through participation, conversation, debate and dialogue adds to the vibrant student life on campus.
