UNO's role as the premier metropolitan university in Nebraska, throughout the United States and across the world is to provide access to exceptional education and opportunities, making sure that each and every student who enrolls can achieve their higher education goals.
On Monday, May 6, 2019, UNO held its Strategic Planning Forum, during which members of UNO's faculty, staff, students, administration, as well as community partners, came together to identify ways to achieve this campuswide goal, known as the Completion Imperative.
The UNO Completion Imperative builds on recent successes that has seen rising retention rates and six-year graduation rates and has the ultimate goal of making sure each and every student enrolled at UNO earns their degree.
"I believe audacious goals inspire the best in us, which is why we are building plans for the campus-wide 'Completion Imperative' among others," explained Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D. "The need is too urgent, the cause too vital, not to pursue bold thinking on what we can accomplish in the areas of retention and graduation."
