Alumni Masters Week is a program sponsored by the Nebraska Alumni Association, Scarlet Guard (the alumni association's student group) and the UNL Chancellor's Office.
Every fall, outstanding alumni return to campus to share their experiences and knowledge with students. All students are encouraged to take part in lectures, presentations and events with the Alumni Masters, who will speak about ways to apply formal education to working situations and career goals.
Since 1964, 390 alumni have participated in Alumni Masters Week. The selection of the Alumni Masters is competitive. Candidates are alumni who have shown great promise, success and leadership in their fields. Each spring, a committee of faculty and administrators makes recommendations to the chancellor, who chooses the participants for the program.
