Barbara Weitz for Regent

Running for You

Barbara Weitz is a community leader, teacher, mother, and grandmother. She is running for the University of Nebraska Board of Regents to add a woman’s voice to the decision-making process and to provide a platform for other voices that are missing from the conversation. As college tuition continues to rise nationwide, Barbara wants to ensure that a University of Nebraska education does not become a consumer product, but is attainable and positions students for success. She also believes in providing lifelong learning opportunities for Nebraskans of all ages.

Working with You

Fiscal Responsibility

Financial issues are a growing concern for everyone. The university needs to be mindful of the burden of cost/debt to students. As a critical economic driver of the state, the university must find revenue streams to support its mission to prepare students for future jobs.

Unique Campus Opportunities

Each campus of the university offers unique opportunities both to the students and the community. UNO, for example, serves its role as a metropolitan campus in a urban environment with a nationally recognized engagement and service learning program. It is critical that regents understand the value of each campus and support their work.

Diverse Leadership

We live in an increasingly diverse world. The university is enriched by the growing diversity of its student body. It is time that the regents gain the benefit of more perspectives on their critical decisions. I have been a student, alumna, faculty member, trustee and board member of the NU Foundation, volunteer, and donor. As a mother and grandmother, I will bring these many roles to the regent position.
