UNO Chancellor Search Advisory Committee

President Hank Bounds has named a 15-member advisory committee to assist him in the national search for the next UNO chancellor. The committee includes representatives of the faculty, staff, students and the community – all key constituencies with whom the UNO chancellor regularly interacts. Committee members will work with Bounds and the search firm to identify, recruit, assess and recommend a rich and diverse pool of chancellor candidates.

The search committee will be co-chaired by Theresa Barron-McKeagney, associate dean of UNO’s College of Public Affairs and Community Service, and Michael Yanney, chairman emeritus of The Burlington Capital Group LLC and a leader of Omaha’s business and philanthropic communities. Other committee members are:
