The University of Nebraska Board of Regents will meet Thursday, Dec. 8, 2011, at Varner Hall, 3835 Holdrege St. in Lincoln. Committee meetings begin at 9 a.m. and the Board meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. All meetings are open to the public. Meetings also will be audio-streamed live at www.nebraska.edu.
The Board will not vote next week on the “employee plus one” benefits expansion proposal that was outlined at the Board’s Oct. 28 meeting. Board Chairman Bob Whitehouse said: “Because of scheduling conflicts, not all members of the Board of Regents will be present at the Dec. 8 meeting, and I have been asked to schedule consideration of the ‘employee plus one’ proposal for a later date. The Board does plan to consider the proposal at a subsequent meeting.”
