What is your best memory from your time at UNMC?

The conclusion of our first year as a new campus with a new undergraduate curriculum and learning that a full time assistant dean for the College of Nursing Northern Division in Norfolk will be joining us in June!

Our four brand values are leadership, commitment to excellence, working together and being a trusted resource. Pick one and tell us a time you witnessed it embodied at UNMC.

Leadership would be the UNMC brand value that has been exhibited in the Northern Division. We have had to pull together as new faculty to open a new division and set into action a new curriculum. All of the faculty of the Northern Division have stepped up to the challenge to get the first year into the record books. We continue to grow and develop.

List three things people may not know about you.
