Panel Discussion on Economic Impact of Academic Excellence April 8 at UNO
Omaha - State and community leaders will discuss the economic impact of academic excellence Friday, April 8, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
The panel discussion is part of UNO's spring strategic planning advance, which will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom on the UNO campus. Media coverage of the event is welcome.
The spring advance, one of two held each year, is designed to help campus officials chart a course of action that will enable the university to achieve its three overarching goals - placing students first, striving for academic excellence, and engaging with the community and region.
Input from students, staff, faculty and community members is an integral part of the advances, said Rebecca Morris, associate professor of marketing and management at UNO and facilitator of the UNO Strategic Planning Steering Committee.
The panel discussion, which will begin at 10:45 a.m., will focus on the economic impact of UNO's academic excellence on the city and state. UNO Chancellor Nancy Belck will moderate the panel discussion. Scheduled panelists are James B. Milliken, president of the University of Nebraska; Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey; David Brown, president and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce; and Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy.
The advance also will feature poster sessions on current faculty and student research.
