Dr. Michael Martin wrapped up his visit to Nebraska late last week. He is one of four finalists for the presidency of the University of Nebraska System.
After touring all four N-U locations, Dr. Martin said he is impressed how the system functions. He says, “It really is a chance to build, augment and add to an institution that I think has made a lot of progress and has progress yet to be made. One of the reasons I like the system here is that the institutions in it are very different from the other and therefore when banned together give you an enormous bandwidth in which to serve.”
Dr. Martin is currently the chancellor of the Colorado State University System. He was the third candidate to visit Nebraska in recent weeks.
Other finalists include Dr. George Ross, president of Central Michigan University, Dr. Hank Bounds, commissioner of higher education for the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning and Dr. Sally Rockey, deputy director for extramural research for the National Institutes of Health. She will visit Nebraska this week.
