From our rural surroundings of Curtis, NCTA helps our state flourish. We offer a practical, applied experiential education to make a difference in fields as diverse as veterinary science, welding, agricultural production and education. Join us, and support Aggies who work hand-in-hand with farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses to build an even stronger agricultural economy in Nebraska.
At NCTA, students are central to everything we do and every choice we make. Our mission is grounded firmly in where we live, and what we can do for our communities. We know that NCTA can lead to a better life for more students, and scholarships provide that essential support to open up access. Along with modernizing our campus through the development of the Student Success and Activity Center, we can further promote workforce development in the agriculture sector and improve educational opportunities in underserved areas of rural Nebraska.
FOR THE FUTURE WE’LL BUILD:
Private philanthropy is the catalyst to make our future real. And only with donor support can NCTA accomplish its loftiest goals. Together, we can significantly boost student recruitment and retention, so that more NCTA graduates go on to lead and solve the greatest ag challenges facing Nebraska.
“We have one mission at NCTA: student success. This mantra drives what we do every day and how we interact with students. Our goal is to enable success for every Aggie student in whatever career path they choose.”

Student Success and Activity Center
The center will provide a welcoming space for students to connect and collaborate, enhancing the student experience and providing a key attraction for future and current NCTA students who will grow the state’s agricultural workforce. The new center will be a modern, efficient building offering a multiuse space for students to enjoy social activities, study together and receive services such as tutoring and mental health counseling.
It takes a lot to build a future, so let’s start the conversation now.
