On Monday, Sept. 25, University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., delivered his 2017 State of the University Address.
Early in the speech, Chancellor Gold thanked Chancellor Emeritus John Christensen for a decade of leadership and momentum. He then quoted former UNO Chancellor Ron Roskens’ 1972 State of the University address, in which Roskens described the UNO community as "guardians of her destiny."
"I believe that never has this responsibility, the need to steward our mission and our values been more important," Chancellor Gold said.
Sharing stories of success and reflecting on challenges, he said his vision is to work collaboratively with the Maverick community to set and clearly communicate priorities, aligning complementary campus initiatives to increase impact, find new resources, and accelerate success.
His vision for UNO’s future, he said, reflects the university’s proud history.
"Our core values of access, academic excellence, and an unwavering focus on our clearly stated mission, on our role as a metropolitan university, embedded in the Omaha community – yet impacting the world – will be the foundation of our continued growth and our success."
