Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts to continue

Lincoln, Neb.--A proposal to create a new Hixson-Lied College of the Arts and Architecture, a consolidation of the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and College of Architecture at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, was removed from the June agenda of the Board of Regents today, and UNL officials do not expect it to be considered in the near future.
