Dr. Brent Cejda retires from EDAD

1. When did you come to UNL and what did you teach/specialize in?

We moved to Lincoln in the summer of 2005. Initially I taught broad courses related to higher education administration such as Issues in Higher Education Administration. Then I was asked to switch to classes developed for the community college leadership certificate such as Teaching and Learning in the Community College. After I served as chair, I taught courses for our master’s degree programs—mainly Higher Education in America. I guess you would say that I was a generalist rather than a specialist.

Kristy Saunders (Asst. Director UNL Husker Hub)

Saunders’ thesis inspires the Husker Hub to develop a video series to aid students

When Kristy Saunders came to UNL to begin graduate school, she didn’t envision that 3 years later she would produce a 100-page document that would help spur the creation of a video series that would help first-generation students at the Husker Hub where she now works. Back in 2018, Saunders moved to UNL for the Master of Arts (M.A.) in educational administration program with a specialization in student affairs administration. The program is often referred to as “the student affairs program”. “I was really attracted to the program because of the social justice focus,” Saunders said.
