In order to better serve the UNO student population, several changes have been made to roles and responsibilities within the Division of Student Success.
The Division of Student Success is committed to supporting student success by partnering with faculty and staff to create a campus culture that ensures inclusion, wellness, achievement and involvement. These organizational changes are designed to support that effort.
“I am proud to support this team of talented and thoughtful leaders who are dedicated to making UNO the best place to be a student,” says Vice Chancellor for Student Success Dan Shipp, Ed.D. “As we continue to pursue our goal of making sure each individual has the opportunity to fulfill their higher education dreams, our team stands ready to serve and support each student.”
