Food for Health Collaboration Initiative 2015
During the last decade, there has been a shift from individual investigator, discipline-based science toward research that crosses departmental and organizational boundaries and is conducted by teams. A primary motivation for this shift is the tremendous complexity of the challenges facing today’s society. Current grand challenges – like those related to global health and food security – can no longer be addressed by individual researchers working in isolation because the innovative science that leads to breakthrough discoveries increasingly occurs at the intersections of multiple disciplines. Therefore, providing opportunities, assurances, and incentives for faculty to network with their colleagues and engage in multi-institutional interdisciplinary research is absolutely critical for Nebraska to improve its research capacity and increase its portfolio of external research funding.
Food for Health
The Food for Health Collaboration Initiative is a comprehensive effort to further enhance Nebraska's research capacity to address critical societal and human health issues related to food. The University of Nebraska is making an investment to facilitate research collaborations. Nebraska EPSCoR also is investing so that all Nebraska research institutions with expertise in Food for Health can partner to grow the state's research capacity and competitiveness.

Steering Committee / Executive Committee
The Online Worldwide Steering Committee, appointed by the President in consultation with Chancellors, includes the Distance Education Director at each campus and representatives of key stakeholder organizations within the University. The Steering Committee will provide advice on budgeting and strategic planning, and may recommend changes in distance education fees and financial protocols and other policies. On operational issues, the Steering Committee functions in an advisory capacity. When addressing policy and procedure issues, especially on new policies or revisions to existing policies, the steering committee will vote and their approval will be used to send the policy up to a higher level as needed.

We are writing to let you know of a security breach that may affect your personal information.
On Wednesday night, May 23, an unauthorized individual gained access to the University of Nebraska’s student information system. The system contains Social Security numbers, date of birth and addresses for current and past students, and also for students who applied to the University of Nebraska but did not enroll.
If your son or daughter applied for admission to the University of Nebraska within the last three years, their personal information is in our system. If your son or daughter applied for federal financial aid (FAFSA) and were required to include parent data, or if you applied for a PLUS loan, your personal and financial information is also included in the system. No credit card information is stored in the system. A small number of individuals also had bank account information associated with their account; those individuals have already been notified.
1. We recommend that you contact one of the three primary credit reporting agencies to place a free Initial Security Alert (90-day) to your credit report. This can be done online or via phone and will alert you to any attempt to establish or extend credit in your name. The three companies are TransUnion (“Initial Fraud Alert”) (800) 680-7289, Experian (“Initial Security Alert”) (888) 397-3742 or Equifax (“Initial 90-day Fraud Alert”) (800) 525-6285. You need only register with one agency and the others will be alerted.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this difficult situation.
