The Board of Regents is pleased to present a KUDOS award to Cara Ortega, the Associate Registrar at the University of Nebraska at Omaha in the University Registrar Office.
Huai-Mei Furman, the Director of Academic Advising and Certification Officer for the UNO College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences, says: “Cara goes above and beyond expectations in everything that she does. She is a go-to colleague for the entire UNO campus, and we count on her ability to think creatively, to problem solve and support students.”
Ortega’s leadership and willingness to collaborate helps faculty and staff better support students as they select classes and complete their degree programs. “Cara's work encompasses removing barriers for students. She understands how important an accurate degree audit system is to a student. Cara's partnerships across campus are integral to the success of advising. As a former academic advisor, Cara understands the nuances of advising and brings this experience into her current role as Associate Registrar.”
With Cara today are her guests, Dr. Rich Klein UNO Vice Chancellor of Institutional Effectiveness and Student Success; and Matt Schill, UNO University Registrar. Please join me in thanking Cara for her dedication to the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
