The Research Council is seeking nominations for faculty to present the 2025 Nebraska Lectures: Chancellor’s Distinguished Speaker Series.
The deadline for nominations is March 1 at 5 p.m.
The lectures, launched in 2003 by the council and the Office of Research and Economic Development, are aimed at featuring the significant achievements and contributions of University of Nebraska-Lincoln faculty, fostering communication across different academic disciplines, and presenting topics of public interest to a broad audience.
There is a Nebraska Lecture in both the spring and fall semesters. Selection as a lecturer is the highest recognition the Research Council can bestow on a faculty member. Adam Houston, professor of Earth and atmospheric sciences, will present the spring 2024 Nebraska Lecture on March 28.
The Research Council and the vice chancellor for research and economic development, who select the lecturers, are now accepting nominations for 2025. Selection is based on major recent accomplishments supporting a distinguished record and ability to communicate to an interdisciplinary audience. Nominees should be nationally or internationally prominent in their fields.
To nominate a faculty member, email Mari Greer, administrative coordinator in ORED, the following:
- a nomination letter;
- the nominee’s CV that includes significant scholarly accomplishments, with an emphasis on the past five years; and
- a 150-word description about the subject/topic that the nominee would lecture about, if selected.
All nominations are confidential. Lecturers will be notified immediately after selection.
The location, format and dates of the 2025 lectures will be determined at a later date. Presentations are typically 35-40 minutes, followed by a question-and-answer session. Previous lectures are available on ORED’s website.
