Chancellor Jeffrey Gold's Welcome
On April 27, 2017, Chancellor Jeffrey Gold was excited and grateful for the opportunity at UNO. May 8 marks his first day.
University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds said April 27 that he has indefinitely paused the University of Nebraska at Omaha chancellor search and appointed University of Nebraska Medical Center Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., to lead both UNO and UNMC campuses on an interim basis.
Dr. Gold’s leadership of UNO and UNMC will build on collaborative efforts already underway — including those with the UNO College of Business Administration — that are growing Nebraska’s economy and quality of life.
Our campuses have a long record of collaboration and I am humbled and honored to get to know UNO and its people even better in the months ahead.
- Chancellor Jeffrey Gold
For example, UNO’s Master of Business Administration program holds three dual degree partnerships with UNMC, including Master of Public Health, Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Pharmacy, and offers a business certificate program for biomedical Ph.D. students.
Collaborations on the horizon include a certificate in health administration and three graduate-level business courses included in UNMC’s Master of Health Administration program curriculum (pending program approval). UNMC’s College of Nursing and UNO’s CBA are also exploring a dual MBA-Master of Science in Nursing program.
Additionally, UNO’s Executive MBA program attracts UNMC employees; four are enrolled in the current cohort class. To better serve future students, the program is working to develop an elective track specifically for healthcare professionals.
These efforts highlight a strong commitment to find innovative education solutions and equip graduates with the leadership and management skills necessary to navigate the future of healthcare.
“Our campuses have a long record of collaboration and I am humbled and honored to get to know UNO and its people even better in the months ahead,” Gold said. “This is an opportunity to work together to change the world – and we will.”
