Best of 2013: UNO Students, Entrepreneurs, Franchising Professionals to Benefit from $1 Million Gift

It was a special year for UNO in 2013 with countless events, achievements, special guest visits and national recognitions for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Back in September, UNO announced a $1 million gift from UNO alumnus and Omaha native John Morgan of Minneapolis, Minn., which created one of the campus' highest ranking endowed faculty positions.

This gift established the John Morgan Community Chair in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Franchising in the UNO College of Business Administration (CBA). It is the sixth community chair at UNO funded through the University of Nebraska Foundation's Campaign for Nebraska and the first endowed chair in CBA.

For more information on this gift, please visit the UNO homepage this afternoon.
