A Message from President Tony Lazarowicz
I hope you all had an opportunity to attend the chancellor’s State of the University address. As he highlighted, there is a lot of excitement surrounding our sesquicentennial celebration for this upcoming year. There are a lot of events that will be happening throughout the year including the Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series, Music concert, Charter Week, and the Husker Civic Challenge. I encourage you all to view information on the upcoming activities by going to https://n150.unl.edu/.
Having said this, I do want to call specific attention to the N150 report. Executive Team members of UAAD and UNOPA expressed specific concerns regarding the lack of inclusion of staff within the overall process, particularly the next steps that are outlined within the N150 report. We recognize that our organizations are not a representative voice of the whole university staff, but we are often called to serve on committees and commissions where staff representation is requested. As such, you can see a copy of the joint letter that was reviewed by both UAAD and UNOPA executive committees before being sent to Chancellor Green and Mike Zeleny (Associate to the Chancellor) at the following link: https://uaad.unl.edu/downloads/LettertoChancellor01.18.2019.pdf
