2022 State of Our UniversityChancellor Ronnie Green
“When I welcomed this year’s freshman class at Memorial Stadium, I made them a promise. I told them – ‘You will be prepared. Through the grit will come stronger, bigger talents. You will become more nimble, flexible and adaptable to any challenge – and better prepared throughout your life to step up in any situation….in a fast-paced, ever-changing world, you will leave UNL with the tools needed to succeed.’

2021 State of Our UniversityChancellor Ronnie Green
“I believe with every ounce of my being that we will come through this crucible-like time more than ever as a leader, not a follower. I believe we will come through it more united in purpose and mission. I believe the creative ingenuity unleashed in this moment in time will continue to empower us to scale to greater heights.”

2020 State of Our UniversityChancellor Ronnie Green
“It was a year where we both celebrated and renewed the commitment of our university’s tri-fold Land-grant mission of access to highest quality education for the 21st century, research and innovation that is changing the world, and engagement with the full citizenry of Nebraska.”

N|150 State of the University AddressChancellor Ronnie Green
“Today I will ask each of you to collectively dream with me and take up the “N150 challenge” -- to reach for greater heights in UNL’s next generation through a “doubled-down” transformative, integrated three-part mission as a world-leading 21st century Land Grant University – a University truly without walls.”

2017-2018 State of the University AddressChancellor Ronnie Green
“This mission has never been more important in our 149-year history than today – in all three mission areas. Higher education has never been more needed for career success, nor research and innovation to better understand and improve the human and natural environmental condition. And I would dare to wager that there have been few times over the past 15 decades where understanding the benefits of higher education and the academe’ for the general public – i.e. translating our value – has been more in demand than today.”

2016-2017 State of the University AddressChancellor Ronnie Green
“It’s a real privilege that we have, as we settle in to the 2016-17 year for us here, to take a breath, to step back, to assess, to take stock of the progress of our university and, this year in particular, I would say perhaps equally importantly, to look out to the future of our great university.”
