The purpose of the EERI UNL Student Chapter shall be the dissemination of knowledge of the theory and practice of all phases of earthquake engineering and other related fields as well as the furtherance of the professional development of the student. The information is passed on by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering, by improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political and cultural environment, and by advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the effects of earthquakes. The organization will prepare the students to participate in the Undergraduate Seismic Design Competition held annually at EERI meetings. The organization will spread the knowledge of modern post-earthquake assessment techniques. The organization will also focus on community resilience from Earthquake Perspective.
