Husker DNA Journey

Students in the Husker DNA Journey project

The Husker DNA Journey, led by Lory Dance, associate professor of sociology and ethnic studies, brought a diverse group of Husker undergraduates together to take a DNA ancestry test and share their stories. The project was aimed at breaking down barriers and helping students better understand and discuss commonalities while recognizing unique backgrounds.

The project is featured on the University of Nebraska's "Diversity, Access and Inclusion" web page. You can watch the 2 minute teaser and the 33 minute documentary.
