Hear all about Nebraska's unlimited possibilities.
I grew up with a real sense of how important the university was to our work—to our family—and I think that's one of the most valuable roles the university players here in Nebraska. The University of Nebraska isn't like other universities.Jeff Raikes, Campaign Executive Committee Member (0 comments)

The Campaign for Nebraska. Unlimited Possibilities.
What does it mean and why are we doing it?
The University of Nebraska Foundation is involved in a comprehensive fundraising campaign to fund university priorities such as student scholarships, faculty recruitment, research and program support. The campaign will conclude in 2014.
“This campaign is focused on opportunities for students, on expanding research in areas we are already renowned and on making a difference in Nebraska,” said James B. Milliken, president of the University of Nebraska. “The campaign will continue to build on the university’s tremendous momentum.”
That momentum includes steady enrollment increases and improvements that are keeping more of the state’s top scholars in Nebraska. As well as record numbers for external funding for research.
Monty Nielsen vividly remembers being taught by his mother, Neva Nielsen, in a one room rural school in Nebraska. He witnessed firsthand her passion and enthusiasm for teaching, and now he hopes to pass it on to students at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
