Office of Government Relations

Our office is committed to effective communication and advocacy on UNMC’s behalf.

We work to identify and monitor legislative and regulatory proposals that might impact UNMC's work to deliver world-class health professions education, create breakthroughs with innovative research, and create a healthy future for all Nebraskans.

Our office also coordinates external requests for legislative and research information, as well as assisting UNMC staff and employees with outreach activities that involve elected officials. We are the primary liaison between UNMC and elected officials, serving as a resource for elected officials and government agencies
