A University faculty member for almost 30 years was appointed
vice chancellor for academic affairs .at the Board of Regents
amBSenridge, on the University staff since 1946, said
he agreed to serve for three years as vice chancellor on Chancellor
James Zumberge's request. .
Breckenridge served as acting vice chancellor during the past
vear following the appointment of Virginia Trotter as assistant
secretary for education in the U.S. Department -of Health,
Education and Welfare. . . . '
A UN-L search committee was appointed to recommend
candidates for the vice chancellor position.
Search Committee Chairman Miles Tommeraasen said the
committee decided that selecting a candidate from within UN-L
ranks would be desirable because there had been a high turnover in
Tonimeraasta, who is vice chancellor of business and finance,
said the corruptee included Breckenridge on the list of 10 names
that finally were submitted to Zumberge.
"In my opinion Breck (enridge) fit closer than any other name
to the criteria guidelines we established," he said.
Those guidelines included undergraduate teaching experience,
and finding someone who was familiar with UN-L's double status
as a state and land grant university.
"Adam Breckenridge is highly experienced and he knows the
university well. He isn't easy, but everyone agrees he is always
fair," Tommeraasen added.
' "When Dr. Trotter departed, the chancellor asked me if I would
serve for a year with the understanding that I would then continue
my service in teaching," Breckenridge explained.
When he was offered the permanent position, Breckenridge said
he accepted with the three-year stipulation-
,"I will conclude my service in the classroom. I came here to be a
teacher although I have enjoyed all of my assignments in the
university. I have had a varied set cf experiences,"' he said.

Breckenridge became chairman .of the department of political
science in 1953 and was named dean of faculties in 1955. His title
was changed to vice chancellor for academic affairs in 1962, when
the duties of the position included the entire University of
He was named vice chancellor for internal programs in 1966. He
continued inlthat post until 1968 when he returned to teaching
and research as professor of political science.
In 1973 he was asked to step in and serve as acting director of
libraries at UN-L.
Breckenridge served in that post for one year because "libraries
are important to me," he said.
As vice chancellor for academic af liars, Breckenridge said his
duties included keeping in constant communication with the
various deans at UN-L, developing programs for student academic
and curriculum concerns and coordinating activities with his
counterparts at UN-0 and the N.U. Medical Center.
"I look forward to the next three years and the years that
follow," Breckenridge said.
He is currently serving as a member of the Advisory Committee
on Goals for Nebraska for the State Department of Economic
Development, member of the Human Service Advisory Committee
to Lincoln and Lancaster County and member of the Committee of
Professional Ethics and Academic Freedom of the American
