UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman gave his 14th State of the University address, Tuesday morning.
Perlman focused on the remarkable changes on the campus over the last 13 years, plus shared objectives for this upcoming school year.
"I know there are hundreds of individual success stories throughout the campus where students are conditioned, counseled and cajoled toward success in their adult lives and the prospects for new discovery are proposed, pursued, and often accomplished," says Perlman.
As Perlman looks towards the future, he admits he underestimated the work it would take to move the enrollment needle.
But hopes it pays off, after all, enrollment is up 1% this fall.
"Our enrollment increase this year should provide us with some budgetary relief," says Perlman.
One project Perlman expects to take off running soon is the innovation campus, "it's hard to get going and to convince people that something's going to be there when they don't see anything there."
The chancellor also touched on the budget, expanding the college of engineering and the master plan.
And in closing he presented more "Perls of Knowledge."
