Public Nature of Search

Applicants are advised that job application materials, such as employment applications, resumes, references letters and/or transcripts, submitted by candidates who become finalists for the position will become public records which must be disclosed upon request. According to Nebraska law, a finalist means any applicant (i) who reaches the final pool of applicants, numbering four or more, from which the successful applicant is to be selected, (ii) who is an original applicant when the final pool of applicants numbers less than four, or (iii) who is an original applicant and there are four or fewer original applicants.

It is the intent of the University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds to publicly identify no fewer than four finalists for UNL Chancellor. The appointment of the next chancellor will be made by the president, subject to approval by the Board of Regents, following university visits that will provide opportunities for faculty, students, key constituents and members of the public to meet the finalists and offer feedback.

University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds has named an advisory committee to assist him in the search for the next chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
