Statement from President Milliken regarding Initiative 424University of Nebraska President James B. Milliken has issued this statement on Initiative 424:
The passage of Initiative 424 will change the law in Nebraska, and the University of Nebraska will, of course, comply with the law. At the same time, we remain committed to increasing opportunity and diversity on our campuses. The Board of Regents has spoken clearly on its commitment to these goals, and we believe that commitment is widely shared by Nebraskans.
We will undertake a review of our programs and initiatives and make changes we believe are required. And we will continue to do all we can, consistent with federal and state law, to extend access to the University as broadly as possible, to encourage under-represented populations to participate in higher education, and to continue to provide educational and economic opportunity to Nebraskans.
