Welcome to the '17-'18 academic year

Faculty, Staff, and Students-

I am so excited to welcome our collective family at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to the start of this unprecedented 2017-18 academic year—a year sure to be filled with optimism, discovery and progress. We are entering the year with record student enrollment for the second year in a row, as an ever-expanding campus equipped to lead with our cutting-edge research and teaching, and as a mature full member of the Big Ten academic and athletic conference.

The Passing of Juan Franco

To our collective University of Nebraska-Lincoln family:

I am deeply saddened to inform you that our dear friend, student champion, and valued colleague Juan Franco passed away yesterday in Houston, Texas. Dr. Franco served admirably for more than a decade as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s vice chancellor for student affairs. He very recently returned to the faculty in our College of Education and Human Sciences.
