Campus COVID-19 Update

Dear UNL faculty, staff and students -

First, thank you. I have been impressed, humbled and proud of how our UNL community has responded to the incredible challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The last six months have brought an unprecedented level of change as we moved all learning to a remote basis in the spring and as we’ve undertaken the comprehensive, detailed and interconnected planning necessary to safely returning to a level of in-person instruction in the fall. It has been, and continues to be, a herculean task — and our UNL community has delivered.

Upcoming Faculty and Staff Town Hall sessions.

Dear UNL Faculty and Staff:

Thank you for your incredible work as UNL has navigated tremendous change over the last several months. As we look to the upcoming year, we face a number of important challenges and opportunities: how to safely and successfully return in the fall, the budget cuts necessitated by the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and our campus journey on anti-racism and racial equity.

Update on our Journey on Anti-Racism and Racial Equity

Dear UNL community -

On June 5, I called for UNL to begin a journey of addressing anti-racism and racial equity. It is important to see this journey and the work of anti-racism as an ongoing process; and more importantly, as a step for us to have greater accountability and a sustained focus as an institution that serves our state and beyond.
