Editor’s Note — Throughout the spring, summer and fall 2023 terms, Curt Bright, videographer in University Communication and Marketing, worked with the Nebraska Alumni Association to highlight the deans and their respective colleges at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. This video and Q&A is the first in the resulting series, “Downtime with the Deans,” that ran in Nebraska Quarterly. Each month, a vignette from the series will be featured on Nebraska Today.

Tiffany Heng-Moss is dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, which celebrated its 150th year in 2022. Though not an avid golfer herself, she enjoys supporting her children on the greens as they compete.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not wearing your Dean hat?

Spending time with my family — frequently that involves doing something golf-related.

How did your family become interested in golf?

My son started at age 3 when my husband placed a putter in his hands. My daughter came to golf later, but picked it up quickly and has since competed at the state high school tournament.

What mental and/or physical benefits do you derive from participating in golf?

I am very competitive, so watching my kids compete in tournaments can be stressful. Running is my go-to for my health and wellbeing.

If you were granted three wishes for your college what would those be?

One, my wish for the college is to be the place for all learners who are passionate and curious about food, energy, water and societal systems. Two, for the college to continue being a community where everyone challenges themselves and each other to thrive, grow and reach their fullest potential. Together, we will boldly shape the future and positively transform the lives of our learners, Nebraskans and global society. And three, to continue its positive trajectory for the next 150 years, to remain at the forefront of agriculture and natural resources teaching and learning, research and discovery, and extension and engagement to serve Nebraska and beyond.
