“One Nebraska is a statewide network of University of Nebraska supporters who advocate for the University of Nebraska, its 53,000 students, and its vital role in growing Nebraska’s workforce, economy, and quality of life.
The University of Nebraska makes a positive impact on every county and community across the state. The University of Nebraska’s annual economic impact is $3.9 billion, but its impact goes beyond just dollars. The University of Nebraska trains more than half of Nebraska’s doctors, dentists and nurses and graduates almost 11,000 students every year. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is driving agricultural innovation to feed a growing global population. The University of Nebraska Medical Center is a leader in cancer research that is gaining global attention while saving the lives of Nebraskans.
In 2018, as Nebraska faced fiscal challenges which led to repeated cuts in state funding for the University of Nebraska, a group of concerned University of Nebraska supporters launched the One Nebraska Coalition.
One Nebraska Coalition Goals:
To build a statewide coalition of University of Nebraska supporters.
To share the impact the University of Nebraska is making throughout the state, including its role in growing our economy, improving our healthcare and agricultural production, and preparing Nebraska’s next generation of leaders through affordable and excellent education.
To make Nebraskans aware of what budget cuts mean to the University now and in the future and to advocate for stable and adequate public funding for the University of Nebraska.
