The news media relations staff is ready to help you at the University of Nebraska Central Administration, all four campuses and the University Foundation. Whether you need to facilitate contact with a faculty expert for an interview, the latest press release or additional information, please feel free to contact us.
At Nebraska's University, academia is more than an exercise. It is an opportunity to participate in programs that actually improve the human condition. You’ll find it in the research labs that work to better understand and find new treatments for today’s most critical diseases and disorders. And in the “smart” classrooms where pioneering work in technology prepares students for innovative new workplaces. And outside the classrooms, where faculty helps students explore the diverse world around them.

Presidential Professors are appointed by the president of the university to serve as public scholars who enrich the cultural and educational life of the university and the state. President Milliken has appointed two Presidential Professors: Ted Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, who is also a faculty member at UNL; and Enrique Martinez Celaya, a renowned painter, sculptor and poet. “It is my hope and expectation that the Presidential Professorship will help demonstrate that the University of Nebraska is one great statewide institution, with exceptional talent and resources available among the campuses and throughout the state,” Milliken said.
