Tim KaldahlTim Kaldahl
Communications for University Affairs
The University Affairs team at UNO is responsible for providing communications and marketing support services that enhance the educational, research and service activities of students, faculty and staff members.
That means, on any given day, Tim's job can take him from one end of campus to another. And, like the office in which he works, Tim's routine involves an impressive variety of tasks: from scanning the daily news headlines every morning to collaborating on a variety of advertising and marketing projects – from planning media events to reacting to media requests – from writing daily news releases to working in the new world of Web design and electronic, Internet publications.
Colleagues say Tim conducts his duties with integrity, good humor and enthusiasm. His professionalism and willingness to do whatever it takes to put the university in the best possible light makes him an invaluable member of the campus community.
Among the many UNO projects he has directed, Tim cited several among the most memorable and satisfying: "Having Afghan President Karzai on campus – and packing an auditorium to overflowing for U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser."
The nomination for Tim offers this praise: "Tim makes his job look easy. But he works tirelessly to promote the university. He has excellent working relationships with the media, and has maintained a high level of mutual respect."
