University of Nebraska

UNMC is one of four campuses of the University of Nebraska; the others are the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Nebraska at Kearney.  The University of Nebraska ‘s governing body – the Board of Regents – consists of eight voting members elected by district for six-year terms. The Board also includes four non-voting student Regents, one from each NU campus, who serve during their tenure as student body president.  The Board supervises the general operations of the university, as well as controls and directs all expenditures.

The Board of Regents appoints the University of Nebraska president, who serves as the chief executive officer for the University.  Walter "Ted" Carter Jr., the eighth president of the University, reports directly to the Board of Regents. Each campus chancellor and several university vice presidents report to Carter.
