The growth and success of the University of Nebraska depends on the voices, ideas, and success of the communities we serve. As part of President Carter’s five-year strategy, the University of Nebraska will invest its time in cultivating community engagement opportunities that advance our work—between campuses, with donors and alumni, elected, community and business leaders, our higher education partners, and with all Nebraskans.
President’s Advisory Council
The University of Nebraska President’s Advisory Council (PAC) is an invitation-only group who serves in an advisory capacity to the University of Nebraska president. PAC members are not just advisors; they are also ambassadors and advocates. There are around 100 members of the council representing Nebraska’s 49 legislative districts.
Presidential Medal of Service
The University of Nebraska’s Presidential Medal of Service celebrates Nebraskans who have given significant service or support to the University of Nebraska and have tirelessly promoted the impact higher education has on Nebraska’s economy and well-being. It is the highest honor the President can bestow on community members.
