University of Nebraska, Lincoln May 30-June 1, 2019 Host: Amy Goodburn
Thursday (2-5 p.m.) UVP 101. While most research universities have a senior administrator (e.g., dean, associate provost, undergraduate vice president/provost or “UVP”) who oversees undergraduate education, specific roles and responsibilities vary. The purpose of UVP 101 is to introduce new UVPs to the Reinvention Collaborative (RC). The RC connects UVPs to a national network of colleagues who oversee and advance undergraduate education at R1/2 universities. UVP 101 involves experienced UVPs and is led by Archie Holmes, the University of Virginia.
Thursday (6-9 p.m.) reception and dinner at the Sheldon Museum of Art with UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green, Executive Vice Chancellor Donde Plowman, and Vice Chancellor Mike Boehm, Institute for Agriculture and Natural Resources.
