A brief description of the policies and procedures that ensure community stakeholder engagement is applied systematically and regularly across the institution’s activities:

Michelle Waite is the assistant to the Chancellor for Community Relations. She is the principal adviser to Chancellor Harvey Perlman in relations between the university and many of its external constituencies, including the state legislature, governmental agencies, the business community, economic development officers and other community organizations.


A brief description of how the institution identifies and engages community stakeholders, including any vulnerable or underrepresented groups:

UNL routinely engages underrepresented groups. A campus wide Town Hall-style meeting took place in October to solicit ideas for creating a more tolerant and inclusive environment on campus. Administrators attended the event alongside dozens students of diverse backgrounds to ensure that comments, concerns, and ideas would be heard and that progress will be made.


List of identified community stakeholders:

State legislature, governmental agencies, the business community, economic development officers and other community organizations.


A brief description of successful community stakeholder engagement outcomes from the previous three years:

The Nebraska Sustainability Round table:
Hosted by UNL Environmental Sustainability Committee and Sustainability Staff, the roundtable featured discussions led by experts in four areas: energy, food and water, campus sustainability and recycling and solid waste. About 80 people attended the public meeting and had the chance to ask experts questions about environmental sustainability, as well as discuss their ideas and concerns.
