International Engagement at the University of Nebraska [v5]
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln's international engagement activities operate at a variety of levels, including individual students and faculty members, teams and classes, programs, departments, centers, colleges, and the university as a whole. Many of our engagement activities have been and will always be carried out by individuals and without formal institutional commitments or agreements, however, the spread and effectiveness of such activities can often be enhanced through formal institutional agreements of the University with foreign institutions and agencies.

[00:00:03.344]Welcome to the
[00:00:04.177]University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
[00:00:10.001]We are the state's flagship institution
[00:00:12.519]and one of the country's
[00:00:13.638]leading public research universities
[00:00:16.239]with more than $284 million in total research expenditures.
[00:00:22.579]We are an inclusive, supportive
[00:00:24.808]and welcoming community of individuals
[00:00:26.858]from 136 countries and all 50 United States.
[00:00:31.767]On campus and around the world,
[00:00:33.596]we focus on global engagement,
[00:00:35.574]important work that impacts people everywhere.
[00:00:39.279]Discovery and innovation secure the future
[00:00:42.228]by feeding the world
[00:00:43.915]without diminishing precious natural resources.
[00:00:47.183]Seeking solutions through our Water for Food Institute.
[00:00:51.347]We've built the capability
[00:00:52.783]to engineer crops for nutrition,
[00:00:54.886]for bioenergy traits,
[00:00:56.920]for traits that help them to grow
[00:00:58.839]against adverse conditions.
[00:01:00.496]We lead an international team of researchers
[00:01:03.288]who are developing a global food atlas
[00:01:05.624]to help increase crop yields.
[00:01:08.235]We could create a global atlas
[00:01:10.315]of food production potential
[00:01:12.180]that's never been produced before.
[00:01:15.539]Nebraska scientists forge solutions
[00:01:17.830]to our most difficult challenges
[00:01:19.614]from new materials built on the atomic scale
[00:01:22.998]to the study of viruses
[00:01:24.359]that attack humans, plants and animals.
[00:01:30.177]Brain research brings clarity to the biology of behavior
[00:01:34.239]and new methods of preventing or treating concussions.
[00:01:39.247]Research helps reduce risk by developing ways
[00:01:42.787]to detect nuclear material.
[00:01:45.240]The research at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln
[00:01:47.790]will make the world a safer place.
[00:01:56.589]Life is enriched through premiere arts
[00:01:59.403]and digital scholarship in the humanities.
[00:02:02.288]We've managed to develop a digital center here
[00:02:05.659]that's grown in prominence
[00:02:07.899]It's now an international leader.
[00:02:10.263]UNL researchers work with parents and schools
[00:02:13.171]to help children succeed
[00:02:14.863]and to strengthen families.
[00:02:16.750]The ultimate goal is to ensure that every child
[00:02:19.965]has the best opportunity to learn, develop and flourish.
[00:02:24.706]We prepare our students
[00:02:26.541]for a global world,
[00:02:27.943]providing opportunities for undergraduate research,
[00:02:30.899]internships, and study abroad.
[00:02:33.331]We really are very focused on promoting education
[00:02:36.791]and training graduate students and undergraduate students
[00:02:39.109]in this work.
[00:02:40.247]Our online programs serve a global classroom
[00:02:43.346]with highly ranked programs
[00:02:44.831]in law, engineering and business.
[00:02:47.369]One of the benefits of the UNL MBA program
[00:02:50.556]is that the faculty members have great global experiences.
[00:02:54.467]The power of partnerships
[00:02:56.550]help bring new and innovative ideas to life
[00:02:59.701]both locally and globally.
[00:03:02.080]Nebraska Innovation Campus
[00:03:03.915]creates private sector collaboration
[00:03:06.247]by connecting business and industry
[00:03:08.603]with university research and students.
[00:03:11.809]They're investing in this campus
[00:03:13.511]for a brighter future for all of us.
[00:03:16.941]Nebraska alumni live all over the world.
[00:03:20.110]They make an impact on everything
[00:03:21.957]from science and technology
[00:03:23.624]to finance and the arts.
[00:03:28.791]UNL engages the world on seven continents.
[00:03:32.406]Agreements and partnerships
[00:03:34.105]open the way for research collaboration,
[00:03:36.695]faculty exchange programs
[00:03:38.445]and opportunities for students.
[00:03:41.092]We share the same problem,
[00:03:42.745]the world share the same problem,
[00:03:44.392]so we really have to work together
[00:03:47.155]and in order to tackle the same problems.
[00:03:50.916]At the University of Nebraska,
[00:03:53.035]we are proud of our welcoming and safe environment
