Our Goal

Broaden Nebraska’s engagement in community industry, and global partnerships: We are Nebraska. Engagement — the co-creation, co-discovery and co-development of solutions — is key to the land grant mission of the University of Nebraska.  At its core, engagement is about relationships and reciprocity that must be built upon a foundation where every person and interaction matters.

The Carnegie Foundation has recognized the University of Nebraska–Lincoln for excellence in community engagement, citing its wide-ranging outreach efforts across the state. The Carnegie organization designates universities for such achievement only after they provide an extensive review and documentation of their civic engagement activities. Receiving the designation will spur the university to hone its strategic vision for community engagement and build on its current efforts.
