OMAHA, Neb. – University of Nebraska at Omaha Chancellor John Christensen will step down at the end of this school year.

Christensen said Monday that he plans to retire next spring after 10 years as chancellor. But he will remain in the job until his successor is chosen.

Christensen has spent nearly 40 years at UNO, and he is the first UNO alumnus to have led the university.

He oversaw dropping the sports of football and wrestling when UNO moved up to Division I. UNO also built its own arena for its hockey and basketball teams.

And during Christensen’s tenure, UNO improved its already strong engineering and business programs and earned recognition for its doctoral research from the Carnegie Foundation.
