Meet presidential priority candidate Jeff Gold during public forums Friday on campus

University of Nebraska System students, faculty, staff and stakeholders will have the opportunity to meet Dr. Jeff Gold, the priority candidate for president, ask questions and hear about his leadership vision during a series of open forums.

Gold, the current executive vice president and provost of the University of Nebraska System and chancellor of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, was named the priority candidate for the University of Nebraska presidency on March 20, following a national search. As state law requires, he is undergoing a 30-day public vetting period. If, after the vetting period, the Board of Regents deems it appropriate, they will bring Gold’s appointment for consideration at a Board of Regents meeting.

University community members and the public are encouraged to submit feedback on Gold’s candidacy anytime during the vetting period by visiting
