UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green to retire in 2023
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green will be stepping down from the role in 2023.
Green, who was named chancellor back in 2016, will retire in June, according to the university.
“Earlier this year, our family spent considerable time reflecting on our UNL journey, ultimately coming to the realization that while these past 13 years have been exciting, and exhilarating, they also have collectively been taxing on our physical and our mental batteries,” he said in an announcement video.
Green completed his doctoral at UNL and also served as the university’s vice president for agriculture and natural resources.
UNL will now begin its search for the university’s 21st chancellor.
“It has been a distinct calling, a privilege, honor and our greatest pleasure to serve our university,” Green said.
Today @Huskerjane0 & I are announcing that I will retire from the role of @UNLincoln’s chancellor at the end of June 2023 to focus our next chapter on our growing family & our faith. It has been a distinct calling, privilege, honor & pleasure to serve UNL. https://t.co/ZKFjV0qGJu pic.twitter.com/JazO2mXHeo
