How a University Succeeds

Last week, we celebrated the service of 961 University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty and staff. In the day-to-day work and commitment of delivering on the tri-fold mission of this great land-grant university, we do not get enough opportunities to celebrate our collective community of people and the amazing and profound impact each member of our community has.

A Note from Chancellor Green on the Campus Climate Survey

UNL Students, Faculty and Staff –

During our nearly 150 year journey, our university has remained focused with purpose on our mission of accessible education, cutting edge research and creative activity, and service to Nebraska and beyond. 

Recently, there has been considerable national dialogue questioning whether freedom of speech and inclusiveness have been suppressed in higher education. These questions have also manifested themselves locally in various ways.   

Our Pivotal 150th Academic Year

Welcome to what promises to be a pivotally exciting and landmark new academic year for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As we eagerly launch in to our first week of classes, I want to extend appreciation, respect, and gratitude to all of our faculty and staff team for your commitment, engagement, passion and excellence in delivering on our mission of world-leading education, research, and engagement for Nebraska and beyond.

Welcome to Nebraska

Welcome to Campus for the fall 2018 semester!

A Year-End Note from Chancellor Green

A Year-End Note from Chancellor Green

Dear faculty and staff colleagues,

Thank you! As we wrap up finals and close the books on another academic year, we have a lot to celebrate. 

This weekend, we will award 3,257 degrees to graduate and undergraduate students – the largest graduating class in university history.  As a member of our brilliant faculty or staff, this is your achievement as much as it is theirs – congratulations.  I am very proud that our graduates can confidently go forward into the future ahead well equipped with a highly valuable Nebraska education, provided by all of you.

An invitation from Chancellor Green

Dear friends, As the University of Nebraska-Lincoln approaches its 150th anniversary in 2019, we are at a pivotal moment. We were founded to serve as the comprehensive public, land-grant, research university for the people of the state of Nebraska. Now we are poised to reach new heights in accomplishing our mission of innovative undergraduate and graduate education, world-leading scholarly research and creative activity, and service to the state of Nebraska and beyond. We have before us an unprecedented opportunity to renew our mission and envision the future of this great university for the next generation.

A message to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln state-wide campus community

The last 10 days at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have been challenging for all of us, forcing us to ask serious questions about the values and principles of our community, while at the same time facing head-on the reality that debilitating proposed cuts in state funding challenge the academic integrity and critical role Nebraska’s flagship land-grant university plays in the future of our state and greater world.
