The Alumni Advisory Council serves the UNL chancellor and the Nebraska Alumni Association in an advisory capacity, and members are ambassadors for UNL in their respective communities. Advisory Council members represent all UNL colleges and a wide range of class years, geographic communities and business professions. Council members serve three-year terms, meeting twice annually on campus to be briefed on issues facing the University, to experience firsthand the programs of the campus and the alumni association, and to lend their advice from an alumni perspective.
