March 30 Message from the President
As we move forward as a purposeful and resilient community into the second week of full online course delivery, I am truly impressed by, and thankful for, our students, faculty, and staff, who have shown tremendous acts of generosity, care, and a spirit of cooperation in responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
I know this is a difficult time, rife with anxiety, fear, and uncertainty. We share deep concerns for our classmates, colleagues, families, neighbors, nation, and world. Our University community was deeply saddened to learn that one of our own, alumnus Ralph Marasco, BA’82, was reported to be the first person in Nebraska to die from the disease caused by the coronavirus. He died March 24 at his Omaha home.
