We’ve frequently said that joining the Big Ten Conference would put an even sharper focus on academics. We have yet another great example to point to after this week.
We welcomed the assistant and associate deans from across the colleges of arts and sciences that belong to the Committee on Institutional Cooperation. As many of you know, the CIC involves all of the Big Ten schools and the University of Chicago. For a number of years this group has gathered on an annual basis to share ideas. The assistant and associate deans in the college visited the meeting last year and volunteered to host it this year so we could introduce ourselves and our campus to our new peers.
The two-day conference turned out to be very valuable and a wise time investment. We had some great sessions organized by the deans from my office. We had very timely discussions on topics like how to enhance advising services and how to help students who are in trouble academically. What a great opportunity to gather insights from those who face the same challenges as we do, especially as we push to grow our enrollment.
I think our guests came away very favorably impressed with what we have to offer. I also was pleased to see how much they loved UNL and Lincoln.
