May 9th’s NCC Salon Guest will be UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman

The UNL Chancellor will be our guest at the May 9th Hollywood Salon. Come meet the man who has headed UNL since 2000, and has been a major supporter of the arts throughout his distinguished career.
     Chancellor Harvey Perlman has had a huge impact on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. During his tenure, a film production program was added to the theatre department, becoming the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film. Performing Arts and Journalism programs were also expanded, and a new Emerging Media Arts Center was announced, thanks to a multi-million dollar donation from the Carson Foundation.

For Nebraska sports, Chancellor Perlman also presided over the switch to the Big Ten, the football stadium expansion as well as several coaching and athletic director decisions.

A York, NE native, Harvey earned a bachelor of arts in history and a juris doctorate from the University of Nebraska. During his law school years, he was editor in chief of the Nebraska Law Review and was elected to the Order of the Coif, a law honors society. He joined the NU law faculty in 1967, becoming Dean of the Law School in 1983. He has also held permanent or visiting positions at the law schools of University of Chicago, Virginia, Florida State, Puget Sound, and Iowa. In 2011, Perlman was named an Honorary University Professor of Xi’an Jiaotong University, in Xi’an, China. This rare lifetime appointment recognizes Perlman as an accomplished scholar or professional of important international reputation and honors his significant efforts in globalizing UNL.

He has always been a big supporter of the Nebraska Coast Connection, and has long promised to come visit us at a Salon. This appearance will come in the final months of his tenure as Chancellor, as he will return to faculty status at the UNL College of Law next fall.We look forward to hearing the latest news on the Johnny Carson Emerging Media Arts Center, as well as other plans for the university for which Chancellor Perlman planted the seeds during his incredibly productive leadership role.

Hope to see you at the Salon on Monday, May 9th in Culver City.
