Steering Committee

Representatives from all areas of campus work tirelessly to incorporate e-learning into the UNMC culture and beyond.

We've gathered an internal steering committee that consists of representatives from all colleges and includes faculty, staff and students. The committee is led under the direction of the senior vice chancellor for academic affairs.
