Chancellor outlines new 'Not Here, Not Now, Not Ever' proposals

During the fall semester a few incidents suggesting racial bigotry or insensitivity occurred at UNL. These incidents were very unfortunate and very disappointing. They provoked an understandable response from students, faculty, and staff and demands for further efforts on the part of the university. The resulting conversation revolved around a broader set of concerns about perceived barriers to success for diverse students of all kinds and proposals for ameliorating those barriers.  [Click here or on the headline above for more information on the Chancellor's proposal as published in UNL Today on January 23, 2014.]
