The reception’s theme — “From Excellence to Eminence: Celebrating 10 Years at UNMC” — reflects the message he shared with the campus community and public in his 2014 investiture speech. Read some of the many med center accomplishments under Dr. Gold’s leadership.

UNMC faculty, staff and students are invited to use this form to share thoughts, wishes and memories with Dr. Gold. The comments will be shared with him when he begins his new role on July 1.

    Congratulations Dr. Gold!

  2. Chris Christen says:

    Dr. Gold: Carol Burnett famously closed her weekly TV variety show with a song that seems especially fitting on my third anniversary with UNMC Strategic Communications. “I’m so glad we had this time together/Just to have a laugh or sing a song/Seems we just get started/And before you know it/Comes the time we have to say/So long.” It’s been a pleasure. Best wishes as you transition from Wittson to Varner Hall!
