The NU Board of Regents visited UNK on March 5 and heard presentations on campus projects and initiatives, and took a tour of the new Health Science Education Complex under construction. Construction manager Michael Cremers from UNK led the tour of Regents Bob Phares, Jim Pillen, Bob Whitehouse, Kent Schroeder, and Tim Clare; and student regents Connor Schulte (UNK), Kevin Knudson (UNL) and Jordan Koch (UNO).
On the tour are vice chancellors Barbara Johnson and Charles Bicak and Facilities Management and Planning Director Lee McQueen, along with NU Provost Susan Fritz and associate general counsel Carmen Maurer. Chancellor Doug Kristensen hosted the visit. He is seen in some photos pointing out the site for University Village, a new public-private partner development just south of the Health Science Education Complex. The complex will be ready for fall classes. The Regents will hold committee meetings at UNK on March 6. The HSEC will house University of Nebraska Medical Center programs in nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy, clinical laboratory science, medical nutrition, radiography, and diagnostic medical sonography.
