(DISTRIBUTE HANDOUT AT BEGINNING; PROBABLY GOOD TO START AT BOTH SIDES OF ROOM AND THEY CAN PASS ON,) I've got a handout I'd like to share with you today, and I'm going to start it circulating before I begin my remarks. (DELIVER TO THOSE TO START CIRCULATING.)
Now that we've got that going, let me say that it is a real pleasure this morning to add my greetings to those of Chancellor Perlman as we welcome you to the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. It is exciting to think about the work you will do here this year, and in the years to come, to advance the world body of knowledge. We look forward to great things from you. And when I say "we", I mean not only those of us in this room today and those who will be your colleagues across the campus, but also the citizens of Nebraska.
