Brian Hastings, president and CEO of the University of Nebraska Foundation, will give the winter commencement address Friday, Dec. 14, at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

In all, 418 graduates will receive degrees during the 10 a.m. ceremonies at the UNK Health and Sports Center. Of the 418, 316 will receive undergraduate degrees, and 102 will receive graduate degrees.

Hastings has served as president and chief executive officer of the University of Nebraska Foundation since July. He came to Nebraska from Ohio where he was executive director of The Ohio State University’s $2.5 billion fundraising campaign, in addition to serving as senior associate vice president at the university. Hastings has more than two decades of experience in higher education fundraising, along with strong expertise in implementing university-wide advancement strategies.

An Ohio native, Hastings got his start in “the development profession” as a freshman at Ohio State in 1991. He found his passion in a job where he called alumni and friends of the university to solicit donations. He moved on to supervising a part-time staff of 60 student callers.

He has worked as assistant director of annual giving at the University of Dayton, director of development for the College of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at Ohio State, and senior associate vice president and fundraising campaign executive director.

The Friday ceremonies will open with the National Anthem, performed by Jordan Peterson of O’Neill. Hilke Brandon of Alma will present Senior Class Reflections.
