The University of Nebraska at Omaha is conducting a national search to find a new vice chancellor to lead the university’s Office of Business and Finance.
The future vice chancellor will succeed Doug Ewald, who stepped down from the position on Oct. 31.
According to a press release, the search committee will be chaired by College of Business Administration Dean Michelle Trawick and includes representatives from UNO, the Omaha community and the University of Nebraska system.
Jim Kamm, who has served as assistant vice chancellor for the office since 2019, is serving as the interim vice chancellor.
“Oversight of the business mission for an ambitious university like UNO requires exceptional organizational skills, a problem-solver mindset, and an excitement for the future,” Chancellor Joanne Li said in the release. “Jim Kamm possesses each of these qualities and more, which makes him the ideal fit to lead this unit during a period of transition.”
The vice chancellor for business, finance and business development oversees all budget, finance, operational and administrative services in support of the chancellor.
