The University of Nebraska has hired Parker Executive Search to assist in the national search for the next chancellor of the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
Parker is charging the university a set fee of $95,000 for the search, plus direct expenses such as travel and teleconference calls with the search committee.
University President Hank Bounds named a 15-member panel of campus representatives last week.
Bounds chose Parker after reviewing submissions and conducting phone interviews with several firms.
“They are well known and well connected, and they are eager to work closely with UNO stakeholders throughout this critical process,” Bounds said in a news release. “I’m confident that Parker will be a great asset in helping us find the right person who can lead UNO into the future.”
Parker will develop a chancellor position profile and help attract potential candidates.
Current Chancellor John Christensen has announced his plans to step down after a decade of leadership at UNO.
