Legislative InformationThe University of Nebraska is a state-funded agency, with approximately one-fourth of the operating budget coming from state funds. University representatives meet regularly with legislators to provide information on the financial needs of the university, as well as a variety of policy issues that impact higher education in our state.
In addition, many individuals and organizations who have an interest in maintaining and building the quality of the University of Nebraska serve as informal "ambassadors," contacting state senators and other policy-makers on issues of importance to the university and the State of Nebraska. New ambassadors are always welcome. Read more and/or sign up to be a university ambassador.
Our State Governmental Relations office is the university's link to state government. We track issues of importance and provide information or testimony during and between legislative sessions.
