The University of Nebraska–Lincoln community will celebrate the tenure of Chancellor Ronnie Green and his wife, “Husker” Jane, during a reception, 4 to 7 p.m. May 11 in Maxwell Arboretum on East Campus.
The celebration, which will mark Green’s upcoming retirement, is free and will feature food, drinks and fellowship. Parking for the event will be available for free (with no permit enforcement) in East Campus lots outlined below.
“It has been a distinct calling, privilege, honor and my greatest pleasure to serve the University of Nebraska–Lincoln as its 20th chancellor,” Green said. “I am immensely proud of all we have accomplished together and of our great university, which has prospered in these challenging times.
“I emphasize ‘we’ because all that we have achieved as a university has been because of you and your collaboration — and because I could not have served without Jane’s unending support for her UNL and the collective support of our family of Husker alumni.”
No official remarks or presentation are planned. The event will be a simple opportunity for the campus community to individually greet the Greens and celebrate their longtime love for and leadership of Husker Nation.
The farewell open house is free and open to students, faculty and staff. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Dinsdale Family Learning Commons (enter via the west door).
Well wishes and memories for Ronnie and Jane Green can also be submitted electronically here.
