Welcome to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, a top-tier national research university and a member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance. We hope you enjoy learning about our campus and the work we do to move Nebraska and the world forward.
Like the university’s founders in 1869, students and faculty at Nebraska look challenges and opportunities in the eye, using fresh thinking and creativity to forge new paths. The expansive geography of our state fosters a closeness and collaboration that makes way for solutions applied nearby and around the world, including innovative public-private partnerships, such as those we’ve developed on our Nebraska Innovation Campus.
We are the state’s flagship and land-grant university and continue to grow in size and prominence. We welcomed our largest and most diverse incoming class in 2016 and ranked ninth on Springer Nature’s international list of Rising Stars in higher education. We now have about 26,000 students and more than 150 undergraduate and 135 graduate degree programs. We are ranked as a best-value university by Forbes and The Princeton Review.
Most importantly, while becoming a larger comprehensive research and land-grant university, we have done so without losing our keen focus on access to education for all and our commitment to Nebraska values.
I invite you to learn more about our robust academic programs, diligent outreach to our state and nation, and research leadership as a distinctive Big Ten university.
Chancellor Ronnie Green
