Welcome to the University of Nebraska. Our goal is to be the best public university in the country as measured by how well we serve the people of our state. We achieve that by providing affordable access to a high quality education, a robust research enterprise that creates new knowledge and new jobs for Nebraska, and a statewide outreach effort that serves people in each of Nebraska’s 93 counties.
Our four campuses provide an excellent, affordable education to students from across the state and around the world. I encourage you to visit and see first-hand what a great experience students have at the University of Nebraska. The momentum on each of our campuses is exceptional – with steady growth in enrollment, an increasing level of talent in the student body, and new classrooms, residence halls and recreational space.
The faculty of the University of Nebraska is among the best in the country. The caliber of teaching and research activity continues to increase, with significant research in areas that are important to our state, and to the world – water and climate, agriculture, alternative energy, transportation, and nanotechnology, as well as promising medical research in cancer, diabetes, obesity, aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
Across the state, a network of extension offices, business development programs, health care services, education and outreach programs, and centers for the fine and performing arts bring the resources of the university to the people of Nebraska.
The University of Nebraska has proudly served the state since 1869. I invite you to learn more about the programs and services of your university and to contact me with your concerns or questions.
