University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is a comprehensive public land grant university, a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance and one of America’s fastest-growing research universities: Nebraska doubled its level of research activity from 2001 to 2015 and ranked ninth on Springer Nature’s international list of Rising Stars in research in 2016. Our faculty are advancing collaborative, inter-disciplinary research in food and water security, ultrafast science, early childhood development, materials and nanoscience and other crucial areas.

Enrollment also is growing fast at Nebraska, reaching all-time highs in each of the past three years. More than 26,000 students are enrolled in Nebraska’s nine colleges, and the 2017 student body was the most diverse in school history. Nebraska also offers one of the nation’s leading undergraduate research programs – backed by more than $1 million dollars in annual funding – where students work directly with faculty doing research that creates new knowledge.

Nebraska approaches the 150th anniversary of its founding with a mission rooted in its status as a land grant university, having national and international influence, students representing every state and more than 100 nations, and as a research university at the forefront of discovery in the humanities and sciences.
