University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman issued the following statement Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014, regarding University of Nebraska President James B. Milliken's appointment as chancellor of the City College of New York system:

"This is a very significant loss for the University of Nebraska. It is an understatement to say that J.B. Milliken has done an extraordinary job in his tenure as president of the NU system. During the past decade, he has been a visionary leader and a staunch advocate for higher education in the state of Nebraska.

"On a personal level, I do want to wish J.B. well in his new endeavor, as he is a great friend and colleague. Our friends at CUNY are getting an innovative and highly regarded leader, and we in Nebraska will continue to benefit from President Milliken’s legacy for years to come.
