The campus community has until Aug. 6 to nominate colleagues to serve as the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s first vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion.
The vice chancellor will provide intellectual, strategic and visionary leadership for university goals surrounding diversity and inclusion, specifically creating a climate of belonging where all faculty, staff and students thrive. The position will report to Donde Plowman, executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer, and serve on the chancellor’s cabinet, providing to the chancellor annual campus metrics and progress towards university goals.
Required qualifications include a doctoral or terminal degree and evidence of significant administrative and management leadership experience in a similar area, specifically in developing and executing a strategic vision, among other requirements.
A 17-member committee made up of faculty, staff and students is guiding a national search for the new leadership position. Greenwood/Asher and Associates, a national executive search firm, is assisting the committee with their work.
On-campus interviews of all finalists will take place in the fall. The interviews will include public presentations and opportunities for broad engagement with the university community.
