Chancellor's Messages

Dr. Rodney D. Bennett

Passing of Prem Paul

To colleagues:

Our dear friend and colleague Prem S. Paul passed away last night, surrounded by his loving family. As you know, Prem served admirably as our Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development, and just recently decided to step down from his role.

Prem’s impact on the University of Nebraska cannot be overstated. Thanks to Prem’s leadership, vigor and unsurpassed vision, our contributions to research, scholarship, and creative activity transformed us as a research-intensive University. Words can’t adequately express the enduring gratitude, respect, and love that the collective University of Nebraska family will always have for Prem. As I mentioned to you last week, I know Prem will always be cheering us on as we reach new heights, inspired by his legacy.

Please continue to support Prem’s family with your thoughts and prayers, and in honor of Prem – do something BIG today – that is what he would want.
