for the lives we'll transform

Relentless Focus on Student Access and Success

Educating students and preparing them for the workforce is a core mission of UNL. Merit-based and need-based scholarships and fellowships are key to recruiting and retaining top students across campus. We must also continue to innovate and support transformative experiences, inside and outside the classroom, that remain relevant and produce a desire for lifelong learning.

For the educational experience we'll strengthen

Enhancing Faculty, Academic and Clinical Excellence

The most important asset at UNL is its people, including faculty, postdoctoral fellows and staff. Elevating the quality of our university will come through increased funding for endowed chairs and professorships, faculty recruitment and support and academic programming. Attracting and retaining top faculty will increase national and international stature and improve overall engagement.

FOR THE FUTURE WE’LL BUILD

INVESTING IN OUR
SHARED VISION.

UNL is a major driver of educational, social, cultural and economic advancement in the state. Private philanthropy is the catalyst that allows the university to move the needle forward to meet UNL’s three-fold mission of teaching, research and service and responsibility to the state of Nebraska. 

A MESSAGE FROM LEADERSHIP

“The choices we make today — like those made by our predecessors in the previous 15 decades — will impact generations to come. Our vision is to be a transformative, world-leading, 21st-century mission-integrated, land-grant university without walls. Just as we stand on the shoulders of those who came before, they will stand on ours. It is an awesome responsibility and opportunity.”

Ronnie D. Green, Ph.D., Chancellor, University of Nebraska–Lincoln

UNL’S TOP 5 CAMPAIGN PRIORITIES

Scholarships and Graduate Student Support

UNL is committed to investing in its students as a top priority of the campaign. That includes substantially increasing the availability of need-based and merit-based scholarships for undergraduate students and providing competitive fellowships and assistantships for talented graduate students.

Endowed Faculty Support: Chairs and Professorships

Faculty members play the most critical role in the success of UNL’s students and overall research and engagement enterprise. Funding for endowed chairs, professorships and recruitment will support top faculty and innovative research.

College of Engineering and School of Computing

UNL aims to address the state’s severe shortage of engineers and computer scientists by investing in Kiewit Hall and creating a dedicated home for the School of Computing. It also aims to establish Kiewit Scholars, a full-tuition scholarship and cohort for exceptional engineering students.

World-class Arts Educational Experiences

By providing a new studio theater, enhanced guest entrance and renovated guest facilities, this campaign will expand the Lied Center for Performing Arts’ positive impact on the community and provide a new “wow” experience at Nebraska’s home for the arts.

Athletics Facilities, Student-Athlete Experience and Support

UNL is committed to offering excellence to student-athletes. The GO BIG Training and Student Support Facility will include a new locker room, strength complex, athletic medicine area, equipment room, meeting spaces for football student-athletes, and a new training table and academic and life skills center for all student-athletes.
