Items of Interest:

President’s Personnel Recommendations (Agenda Item IX-A-1)

Three people have been recommended for senior administrative positions at the university. They are: Finnie A. Murray, Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Student Life at the University of Nebraska at Kearney; John Christensen, Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs at the University of Nebraska at Omaha; and Louis G. Pol, Endowed Dean of the College of Business Administration, University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Nebraska Center on Research for Children, Youth, Families and Schools (Item IX-A-3)

This proposed center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will serve as a catalyst for cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and will facilitate partnerships among faculty focusing on children, youth, families and schools and their interrelationships. The goal is to have a nationally recognized center of excellence in research related to children and youth and the variety of contexts within which they live and develop.

Doctor of Audiology Degree (Item X-A-1)

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is proposing a new professional degree – Au.D .– in audiology and hearing science. This doctoral degree reflects a growing national movement in the training of audiologists to meet new accreditation and certification requirements that will go into effect in 2007. The Au.D. will replace the current master of science degree in audiology.

New Campus Identification Card (NCard) (Item X-B-2)

Students and faculty at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have had identification cards since 1985 that permit on-campus purchases, access to campus recreation facilities and sports events and confirmation of student eligibility for benefits and activities. If approved by the Board of Regents, the new “Ncard” will be issued under a licensing agreement with Wells Fargo and Company beginning in March and will expand services to include depository bank accounts, ATM card capability, and off-campus purchases. Purchases with the card will be charged against funds deposited in the cardholder’s bank account – no credit-card purchases will be available. In return for the license, Wells Fargo will pay UNL $250,000 on execution of the agreement, $300,000 at the end of each contract year, and $15 per account above 15,000 faculty, staff, and student accounts
