Thanksgiving Day will take place on Thursday, Nov. 28, this year and the UNO campus will observe the Thanksgiving Holiday Break with a student holiday on Wednesday, Nov. 27, and a campus closedown from Thursday, Nov. 28 through Sunday, Dec. 1.
Ahead of the Thanksgiving Holiday, UNO Chancellor Jeffrey Gold, M.D., has provided a message of encouragement and support for the campus community:
"Hello, I'm Jeff Gold and I have the honor of serving as the Chancellor of the University of Nebraska Medical Center and, of course, the Chancellor of UNO.
I wanted to take just a very few minutes to wish each and every one of you a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday season.
I know many of our students, our staff, our faculty and of course the community that we serve celebrate this holiday. It's an opportunity to be with your family, it's an opportunity to travel frequently, but most importantly to me it's an opportunity to say 'Thank You' for all of the wonderful things that make our campus a safe and welcoming place. It's an opportunity to express our gratitude for the learning opportunities, the research, and community engagement that really makes our campuses so special.
I hope that each of you has a wonderful and safe holiday and I very much look forward to seeing you when you get back. And thanks so much for making UNO, and for making UNMC, a really unique place to be.
I'm Jeff Gold, and Happy Holidays."
Additional details about the Thanksgiving Holiday break can be found on the UNO website.
