Saturday, August 21, 2021 Ronnie Green and Trev Alberts issue statement on conference alliance
We've all been waiting for when the other conferences might react to the change of Oklahoma and Texas moving to the SEC at some point in the future. Would there be another round of expansion? Would the Big 12 continue to get raided? Who makes the next move?
Then silence. A lot of silence.
The Athletic reported recently that the heads of the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big Ten and Pac-12 were beginning to find footing in a mutual agreement to line up their votes and potential for non-conference scheduling behind each other to aggressively protect their interests in college athletics.
Monday, June 28, 2021 UNL breaks ground on new, privately-funded College of Engineering
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln broke ground Monday on Kiewit Hall, a new home for the College of Engineering on the University's flagship campus.
Kiewit Corporation pledged $20 million to the $97 million project to be built east of Memorial Stadium at 17th and Vine Streets.
The rest of the financing for the project will come from fundraising.
Sunday, August 30, 2020 UNL, World-Herald join to examine racism in Nebraska
The Aug. 23 police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin, amplifies our national soul-searching set off by the killing of George Floyd in May under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. Many Nebraskans are pondering what it means to be racist, how systemic racism uniquely shows itself in Nebraska — and what they must do to create change.
These are questions also being asked at the state’s flagship public university and its oldest and largest newspaper. As leaders of those institutions, we must acknowledge they have their own histories of exclusion, discrimination and misguided assumptions. Our institutions, however, have both the resources and the obligation to open this important dialogue and guide it toward lasting change for our state and the people who live, learn and work here.
Between them, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (founded in 1869) and the Omaha World-Herald (founded in 1885) have 285 years of experience informing and educating Nebraskans and fostering dialogue about the critical issues facing our state and our nation.

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 Ronnie Green nods to UNL's 150-year history, looks to future
University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green’s speech Tuesday covered 200 years, going back to 1869 and looking ahead to 2069. It lasted 68 minutes and consumed 45 pages of copy.
Speculation is inaccurate, however, that Green’s new beard came in entirely during his State of the University address, which won him a standing ovation from the 637-person crowd in attendance at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.
Many in the audience also went onto the stage afterward to try out the Dairy Store’s new Nifty 150 flavor of ice cream. The popular UNL Dairy Store set up a temporary soda fountain shop onstage, complete with servers in uniform. The ice cream flavor and the speech celebrated the 150 years of university progress since it was founded as a land-grant college in 1869.
Tuesday, July 31, 2018 Barnstorming the state, UNL takes a positive message on the road
It’s not the barnstorming flying circuses of a century ago, nor a barnstorming baseball exhibition.
But if you live inside what the University of Nebraska calls its 400-mile-wide campus, chances are the university will make a tour stop at a gathering place near you.
With school a few weeks away, Chancellor Ronnie Green and others representing UNL have criss-crossed the state to discuss Nebraska's largest public university campus in coffee shops, hotel ballrooms and high school cafeterias.
