University of Nebraska System students, faculty, staff and stakeholders will have the opportunity to meet Jeffrey P. Gold, MD, the priority candidate for president, ask questions and hear about his leadership vision during a series of open forums.

The forums for today (April 12) are:

  • 8:30 a.m. – University of Nebraska at Kearney Forum No. 1 (Ponderosa Room A, Nebraskan Student Union)
  • 10 a.m. – UNK Forum No. 2 (Ponderosa Room A, Nebraskan Student Union)

Dr. Gold, the current executive vice president and provost of the University of Nebraska System and chancellor of UNMC, was named the priority candidate for the University of Nebraska presidency on March 20, following a national search. As state law requires, he is undergoing a 30-day public vetting period. If, after the vetting period, the NU Board of Regents deems it appropriate, they will bring Dr. Gold’s appointment for consideration at a Board of Regents meeting.

University community members and the public are encouraged to submit feedback on Dr. Gold’s candidacy anytime during the vetting period by visiting this president search feedback form.

The forums will be in person, and some will have options to attend virtually. All forums are open to all members of the university community, the public and news media. Individuals are encouraged to attend the sessions that best fit their schedule. Forums also are scheduled for:
