MOESER from page 1 y
Despite being a Nebraskan for
the past four years, Moeser said his
attributes will fit the bill at Carolina.
He’ll face some of the same chal
lenges at UNC he faced at UNL.
Moeser has committed himself to
helping the university raise $1.5 bil
lion - a goal he says will take nine
years to accomplish.
The money is necessary to main
tain the programs and initiatives that
make the school the best, he said.
James Griesen, vice chancellor
for student affairs, said Moeser’s
fund-raising efforts at UNL have
been one of his top accomplishments.
During his tenure, Moeser helped
to secure a $32 million donation from
Carole and Edward McVaney, both
The money is going to the J.D.
Edwards Honors Program in
Computer Science and Management
and the construction of the Esther L.
Kauffman Residential Center.
After Mildred Topp-Othmer died
and gave $ 125 million of her estate to
the university, Moeser set up a plan to
use the money for 24 endowed pro
He also used the money to add
stipends for 60 graduate teaching
Moeser has used personal
warmth” to talk to alumni and people
across the state and nation in his
fund-raising efforts, Griesen said.
“He’s been a good salesman for
the university,” he said.
. Moeser said UNC also needs to
raise faculty salaries in order to main
tain its prestige.
He will likely face resistance
from students when he proposes a
tuition increase, he said.
He received a similar attitude this
year from faculty and staff members
after the university was forced to
reallocate money from programs to
pay for things the state’s appropria
tion to the university didn’t cover.
Some of the appropriations went
to salary increases instead.
Moeser will also have to work
with other administrators at UNC to
work toward the passage of a billion
dollar bond issue to repair buildings
that are aging on campus.
At 61 years old, Moeser said he
has the abilities to take onthe chal
“It’s a very good fit,” he said/ ^
Ask others around the university
what legacy Moeser wall leave behind,
and they will give a somewhat vague
answer: an extraordinary commitment
The general idea sums up the num
ber of small visions Moeser has had
since he came to the university in
February 1994, said Richard Edwards,
senior vice chancellor for academic

state’s best students. He’s reached out to

He created the Future of Nebraska
Task Force, which seeks to boost fund
ing for programs that could have
national prominence. He worked with
the Life Sciences Task Force.
Edwards said Moeser’s commit
ment to making the university a pre
mier institution academically charac
terizes his administration.
“This has been the most constant
and strongest thread, this call to excel
lency and high quality,” Edwards said.
But some across campus have been
critical of Moeser’s vision, he said.
“It’s understandable that people on
campus and off disagree whether his
methods or focus is right,” he said. “But
no one challenges the overall notion.”
That overall notion is to do what is
necessary to be a high-class university.
Moeser said he feels proudest ofhis
efforts to bring excellence to the uni
versity through a refocusing on aca
UNL is known for its football
empire, Moeser said, so it hasn’t always
had the right perspective when it comes
to the athletic-academic balance.
He said it’s improving, though.
“I think we’ve worked hard with
alumni to support the academic success
of this university, not just the win-loss
record of the football team,” he said.
UNC is known for its basketball
empire, of course. But Moeser said the
school has its priorities more in bal
“I have a sense that athletics is not
as dominant a feature,” he said.
Remembering the red
Even though he will become a
North Carolinian in a few months,
Moeser said he will always feel con
nected to Nebraska.
He said he and his wife, Susan,
have developed an appreciation for
Nebraskans’ warmth, selflessness and
connection to theland Ty; *

Osborne told him he would retire.

son - months before media, the players
or the people ofNebraska found out
“I had to carry that with me the
whole season,” he said.
He said he will also remember
meeting with leaders of American
Indian tribes on Sept. 1, 1998. The
agreement said the university would
turn over the tribal remains still housed
“I will remember that moment with
the Native Americans, when we signed
that agreement they weren’t expecting
us to sign.”
Now that he is leaving, it is ques
tionable whether Nebraskans will
remember Moeser’s influence years
Edwards said Moeser’s accom
plishments will be remembered if the
university maintains “maturity” and is
“self-confident” in its direction.
If it is, then the administrators who
succeed him wall build on the founda
tions Moeser built.
“If we are successful in doing that,
the accomplishments of Moeser will be
seen as die necessary building blocks,”
Moeser said he hoped he is remem
bered for his contributions to academic
excellence and the effort toward
improved climate at UNL.
But if he isn’t, he has one hope for
the next chancellor.
“I think (my advice) would be not
to shoot too low witirone’s aspirations,
keep than high,” Moeser said.
