2020 State of Our UniversityChancellor Ronnie Green

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.”
