Nominate Nebraska Lectures speakers
The UNL Research Council is soliciting nominations for the 2014-2015 Nebraska Lectures: Chancellor's Distinguished Lecture Series.

The Nebraska Lectures are high-profile public events and represent the highest recognition the Research Council bestows on an individual faculty member. The Research Council established this lecture series in 2003 in collaboration with the Office of Research and Economic Development and the Office of the Chancellor. For more information, visit the Nebraska Lectures website.

The Nebraska Lectures celebrate significant faculty accomplishments and are designed to foster communication among students and faculty in different academic disciplines. They present topics of public interest or scientific and artistic discoveries in a non-technical format that attracts a wide audience, including the local community and public officials.

Selection criteria are: major recent accomplishments that support a distinguished record and an ability to communicate with a multidisciplinary audience. Nominees should be nationally or internationally prominent in their fields.

The deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. March 3. To nominate a faculty member, please e-mail a nomination letter and a short CV that includes significant scholarly publications during the past five years and major university or national awards to Mari Greer, administrative coordinator, at mgreer1@unl.edu. Nominations are kept confidential. The Research Council and the vice chancellor for research and economic development select the lecturers, who will be notified immediately.
