Franco's List

On Friday, Nov. 18, the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Juan N. Franco and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Character Council awarded 30 students with the Franco’s List distinction. Staff, faculty, and friends and family of the recipients were in attendance as guest speaker Dr. Ann Koopman opened the ceremony with inspirational quotations. Koopman thanked the students for making a positive impact on campus and in the community. 

Franco Friday provides town hall for staff members

On Friday, February 17, more than 50 staff members from various departments in the Division of Student Affairs gathered in the Nebraska Union third floor hallway for Franco Friday. This town hall style event began last spring to encourage staff to connect with colleagues beyond their department and to provide staff with a venue to get questions answered by Juan Franco, vice chancellor for student affairs.

Our Nebraska celebrates inclusion

Our Nebraska, a series of events held March 6-10, gave students from all backgrounds the opportunity to discuss what it means to be diverse and how to create an inclusive campus and community.

Previously known as the Empowerment Forum, Our Nebraska offered events throughout an entire week rather than in a concentrated day-long seminar. Activities were sponsored by Student Affairs and the Office of Academic Support and Intercultural Services (OASIS) with co-sponsorship from the Diversity Council.

Goodin named director of Services for Students with Disabilities

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has named George “Sam” Goodin as director of Services for Students with Disabilities. Goodin, director of Disability Support Services at Southern Illinois University, will start his new role April 3.
