Connecting Disciplines Through the University-wide Institutes

NUconnections creates a space for faculty from all four campuses to meet and interact along with business leaders and policymakers. New faculty and those unfamiliar with the university-wide institutes who are interested in engaging in collaborative efforts are encouraged to attend to stimulate conversations and ideas.

Complimentary breakfast and espresso bar provided by The Mill.

A panel discussion will be hosted by:

Susan M. Fritz, Ph.D., Executive Vice President & Provost
Executive Vice President & Provost

University of Nebraska

with the NU Institute Executive Directors: 

Robert C. Hinson | National Strategic Research Institute
Peter G. McCornick | Water for Food Global Institute
Samuel J. Meisels | Buffett Early Childhood Institute

Dr. Fritz’s opening remarks will provide context and insight into the development of the four interdisciplinary institutes and her overall vision for their futures. She will engage the executive directors to describe more specifically their institute’s desire to cross academic disciplines, how they engage with faculty and their ideas for the future.
