Meg Lauerman

Meg Lauerman, director of University Communications since 2001, believes that the talent on the University Communications team is second to none in the nation's top research universities, and stacks up as dynamic and innovative when compared with any communications firm in the nation. She also believes that strategic creativity in communications can and does come from all areas of the institution, and that job title has no bearing on being able to make important contributions in moving the university ahead.

Lauerman previously served as an assistant professor of advertising, UNL College of Journalism and Mass Communications; media specialist for State Farm Insurance Co.; communications director for Nebraska Math and Science Initiative; communications director, Lincoln Public Schools; senior producer, Nebraska ETV; visiting assistant professor of broadcasting, UNL; and as a producer and writer for KOLN-TV news.

Believing that community service is an important part of life, Lauerman has served on the boards of United Way's Women in Philanthropy, the Nebraska Humanities Foundation, Friends of Ak-Sar-Ben, Leadership Lincoln and the Lincoln Community Foundation, and as congregational moderator of her church. The Nebraska Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America named her 2006 Public Relations Professional of the Year. She is an accredited member and past board member of PRSA Nebraska, and a member of American Marketing Association and Lincoln Ad Federation. She earned her bachelor's and PhD from UNL and her master's from Michigan State University.
