The University of Nebraska Board of Regents consists of eight members elected to serve six-year terms representing districts across the state.

Board members meet every six to eight weeks. Regents are not compensated, but do receive tickets to athletic events.

A new regent will be chosen to represent District 4 after Regent Bob Whitehouse announced he would not seek re-election this year. Larry Bradley, an adjunct professor at UNO, and Elizabeth O'Connor, a former student regent at UNO, are seeking to represent the district which includes Sarpy County and a portion of Douglas County.

In District 5, incumbent Rob Schafer of Beatrice will square off against Robert J. Prokop of Wilber for the seat which covers 17 counties in Southeast Nebraska, including northwest Lancaster County.

The District 8 regents' race features one-term incumbent Hal Daub and Barbara Weitz, a former UNO educator, to represent a large swath of Omaha and Douglas County.

Regent Jim Pillen of Columbus is unopposed in the District 3 race.

The races are nonpartisan.
