The 2011-2012 Nebraska Lectures: The Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series featured a notable climatologist and a legal authority. In his fall lecture, Donald A. Wilhite, director of UNL’s School of Natural Resources and founder of the National Drought Mitigation Center, presented “Managing Drought in a Changing Climate.” He discussed proactive, risk-based approaches governments can use to minimize the economic, environmental and social impact of droughts. In her spring lecture, Josephine R. “Jo” Potuto, Richard H. Larson Professor of Constitutional Law, presented “The NCAA: Who, What, When, Where, How and Certainly Why.” Potuto, the university’s faculty athletics representative to the NCAA and the Big Ten Conference, used the NCAA as an example of how process influences decision-making and fairness, especially in large organizations. The Office of the Chancellor, the Research Council and the Office of Research and Economic Development co-sponsor these lectures featuring prominent faculty.
