About University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln, chartered in 1869, is an educational institution of international stature. Nebraska, a member of the Big Ten Conference and the Big Ten Academic Alliance, is classified within the Carnegie “Doctoral Universities: Highest Research Activity” category. Nebraska is also a land-grant university and a member of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU). The university is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The University of Nebraska was founded on February 15, 1869. Always a place of high ambition, this was one of the first institutions west of the Mississippi River to award doctoral degrees—the first was granted in 1896. The University of Nebraska established the world’s first undergraduate psychology laboratory. The discipline of ecology was born here, and the campuses reflect that tradition, being recognized as botanical gardens and arboreta. An early institutional interest in literature and the arts provided the foundations for today’s Prairie Schooner literary magazine, for the University of Nebraska Press, and for the Sheldon Museum of Art, which houses one of the world’s most significant collections of 20th century American art. Today, Nebraska is one of the nation’s leading teaching institutions, and a research leader with a wide array of grant-funded projects aimed at broadening knowledge in the sciences and humanities.

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is part of the University of Nebraska system, which is governed by a Board of Regents whose members are elected by Nebraska voters. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln was chartered by the Legislature in 1869 and serves as both the land-grant and the comprehensive public university for the State of Nebraska. Those responsible for its origins recognized the value of combining the breadth of a comprehensive university with the professional and outreach orientation of the land-grant university, thus establishing a campus which has evolved to become the flagship campus of the University of Nebraska. The university works cooperatively with the other three campuses and Central Administration to provide for its student body and all Nebraskans the widest array of disciplines, areas of expertise, and specialized facilities of any institution within the state. Through its three primary missions of teaching, research, and service, the university is the state’s primary intellectual centre providing leadership throughout the state through quality education and the generation of new knowledge. The university’s graduates and its faculty and staff are major contributors to the economic and cultural development of the state. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln attracts a high percentage of the most academically talented Nebraskans and its graduates form a significant portion of the business, cultural, and professional resources of the state. The quality of primary, secondary, and other post-secondary educational programs in the state depends in part on the resources of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln for curricular development, teacher training, professional advancement, and enrichment activities involving the university’s faculty, museums, galleries, libraries, and other facilities. The university provides for the people of the state unique opportunities to fulfil their highest ambitions and aspirations thereby helping the state retain its most talented youth, attract talented young people from elsewhere, and address the educational needs of the non-traditional learner. International students comprise a significant portion of their applicants and their graduate student body. At the Fall 2016 census, international students representing 97 countries made up 23% of their total graduate enrolment.
