Ted Carter addresses UNL’s diversity plan
President Carter says he wants to move forward with a 'mature set of voices'
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska University Systems President Ted Carter spoke at the Board of Regents meeting Friday morning and addressed UNL’s new diversity plan that’s received criticism from several Nebraska lawmakers and the board of regents.
Carter admitted that he and UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green mishandled the initial announcement of the plan.
“We want to move forward in a sincere, mature set of voices,” Carter said.
Governor Pete Ricketts has repeatedly criticized the plan, even going as far as saying Green thought UNL was racist.
However, Carter said Green has spoken to each Member of the board of regents and the university will communicate better moving forward, saying these discussions do involve race.
