The University of Nebraska is thinking about returning to its past practice of providing a house for NU's president to use.
The Board of Regents will discuss allowing the NU Foundation to buy a house for the president's use at its meeting Friday. Donations would pay for the house.
The university already provides an annual housing allowance of $24,000 to J.B. Milliken. The chancellors at each campus receive similar amounts. But the university used to provide a house to its president. That home burned down in 1996.
Regent Tim Clare says many universities provide homes for their presidents to use. Clare says Milliken would likely use the home to entertain university guests.
