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.

Welcome Back

To the University of Nebraska-Lincoln community of students, faculty and staff:

I am excited to welcome everyone back to campus as we launch a new semester in a new year. I hope each one of you had quality time for rest, reflection and celebration during the holiday break.

Chief of Staff and Associate to the Chancellor update

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Zeleny as chief of staff and associate to the chancellor, effective Jan. 5, 2018. This move follows the announcement last week that Bill Nunez will become interim vice chancellor for business and finance, upon the retirement of Christine Jackson. Mike will serve as a senior adviser and will report directly to me on a wide variety of strategic and executive duties, special projects and initiatives involving the chancellor’s office and its priorities, including internal and external relations.

Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance update

Dear Colleagues:

As you are all aware, in the past few months a search committee led by Dr. Donde Plowman and Dr. Mike Boehm has been working diligently to identify potential vice chancellor for business and finance candidates. A thorough national search with the assistance of search consultant professionals from Witt/Kieffer led to the identification and interviews of four finalists on campus this fall. Unfortunately, we were not successful in filling the position with the right person to lead our efforts moving forward from this search process.
