The University of Nebraska Board of Regents next week will consider making Dr. Jeff Gold's appointment leading the University of Nebraska at Omaha official.

If approved, the measure would put both UNO and the University of Nebraska Medical Center, based in Omaha, under Gold's leadership.

NU President Hank Bounds tapped Gold, 66, to lead UNO after a nationwide search to replace the now-retired John Christensen stalled in April 2017.

In November, Bounds announced Gold would continue serving as the chancellor of both UNMC, which he has led since 2014, and UNO through the 2021-22 school year.

Following a 30-day feedback period required under law, regents will take up the appointment at a special meeting slated at 11 a.m. Dec. 20 in the Varner Hall boardroom.

As part of Gold's additional duties, he will be compensated with an additional $100,000 salary stipend, adding to his annual salary of $853,338, according to the regents' agenda.

UNL Vice Chancellor Mike Boehm announced Heng-Moss as the new leader of the college earlier this week.
