UAAD Picnic

Join your UAAD colleagues Wednesday, May 23, at Varner Hall. Networking and a short business meeting begins at 11:45 a.m. with announcement of the 2018-19 UAAD Officers. UAAD members will enjoy a "tailgate" style lunch with hamburgers, brats, macaroni salad and baked beans. Lunch cost is $5.


Members are encouraged to bring an office-mate or colleague who may be interested in joining UAAD. Prospective members may get a jump start on their 2018-19 membership, which costs $20.

Mission: Hydrate Lincoln

As the temperatures heat up, please join the Community Outreach committee in helping the people of Lincoln stay hydrated by providing bottled water for the People's City Mission. Bottled water will be collected at the UAAD Picnic May 23. If bringing a package of bottled water to the picnic doesn't appeal to you, please consider making a cash donation, which will go directly to PCM. Anything helps!

President's Message

Amy Lanham

The University of Nebraska system is faced with a $49 million reoccurring budget shortfall. The overview of the Budget Response Team Implementation Strategies may be found online. This is a monumental task and one that is not without difficulty. 

Chancellor Green shared in the September Town Hall meeting that in addition to the Budget Response Efficiencies there will be additional Budget Reallocations & Reductions necessary on the campus level. These reallocations and reductions will follow the procedures outlined by the Academic Planning Committee. As the UAAD President, I will be representing you, the member, in this process. More information may be found online. Our General Meetings each month will have a focused time on hearing from the membership, so that your voice can be heard through me as I represent staff to the committee. Again, I encourage you to actively engage in the association and share your thoughts, concerns and ideas.


We promote professional development for employees with administrative or professional / managerial responsibilities.
