Impact of Giving
During the University's last major campaign, 1,000 new student scholarship funds were created, nearly 100 funds were created to recruit and retain faculty, and 20 facilities were constructed or renovated. This raises everyone's expectations for what a new campaign can achieve for students, teachers, researchers and Nebraskans.
"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. We are poised to become an international leader in a number of areas that matter greatly to Nebraska," Milliken said.
Those areas include early childhood education; water for food; cancer research and care; agriculture and life sciences; information technology and business; architectural engineering and construction; and increasing our global engagement.
For President Milliken the goal is simple.
"We want to be the best public university in the nation as measured by the impact we have on the people of the state we serve."
