Update on EVC search

Colleagues,

As we head toward the final six weeks of classes for the 2016 fall semester, I wanted to quickly update you on our search for the next University of Nebraska-Lincoln executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer.

Over the last few weeks, our campus community met with four finalists for this position. All were well qualified and offered many exceptional attributes, and we are deeply appreciative of their time and interaction with us.

Communicating benchmark reports and ongoing diversity and inclusion efforts

As you know, we began this academic year with a stronger focus on diversity and inclusion. Our incoming class is the most diverse in the university’s history, and this fall we added more specificity on our diversity and inclusion beliefs in relation to the university’s core values, which were established in 2006. We also hosted our first Husker Dialogues event for incoming students, and we established the Diversity Programming Excellence fund.
