Brothers (from left) Donde Plowman, Kathy Farrell and Cynthia Milligan, all faculty initiates of Alpha Delta Chapter at Nebraska-Lincoln, have brought tremendous success to the University's College of Business. 

Brother Milligan, who retired as the first female Business Dean in 2009, brought a strong foundation to the program with the goal of furthering technology education in future business execs, by helping create an honors program, international business programs and a preparatory class for all freshman in business. 

Upon Brother Milligan's retirement in 2009, Donde Plowman (a professor in a strategic communication with research in organizations and leadership) filled the position. Brother Plowman led the way on numerous initiatives, including the Honors Academy, Career Center and the Clifton Strengths Institute. She also played a major role in a summer program assisting high school juniors. After then serving as executive vice chancellor and chief academic officer at Nebraska, she is now chancellor of Tennessee-Knoxville. 

Most recently, Kathy Farrell has stepped into the role of Dean, hitting the ground running kicking off an inclusive strategic plan involving faculty, staff, students and alumni. According to Plowman, "Kathy is the right leader to take the college to the next level. AS a trained accountant who is financially sophisticated, she is excellent at executing because she thinks through the details. Her analytical strengths give others confidence in her choices."
