An editorial piece authored by Chancellor Joanne Li, Ph.D., CFA has been published in the Omaha World-Herald.

The article was published on Thursday, July 21, one month before the start of Fall 2022 semester classes.

As Chancellor Li states, the cost of higher education can provide a difficult barrier for many students, particularly those who, like the UNO student body, are often first-generation; working part-time or full-time; and already requiring some form of scholarship to pursue their education.

“Tuition is just one piece of the puzzle. The cost of classroom materials and textbooks can also burden students. And this is felt in all corners of higher education,” Chancellor Li states.

This is why it’s important that, for nearly 30 years, UNO faculty, staff, and administrators have “dreamed daringly” to innovate what the future of higher education could – and needs to – look like.
