Cal joined the College of Business staff as its first Academic Navigator in 2022.  His main role on campus is to support students through the inevitable challenges of college.  Cal’s favorite part of his job is being on a campus where so many students are writing small (and sometimes, not so small) parts of their stories every single day.

Growing up in Omaha a lifelong Husker fan, Cal attended UNL and completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2019.  Upon graduation, he began his professional career as a high school chemistry teacher in San Jose, California.  During his three years of teaching in San Jose then Omaha, he also spent a bulk of his time coaching basketball and baseball.  Cal earned his master’s degree in education from Creighton University in 2021.

Outside of his job, Cal is more than likely hanging out with his younger siblings back in Omaha, walking his oversized Old English Sheepdog, Finn, or going to literally any Husker sporting event.
