Looking back on 2019 and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s 150th year, we have much to be thankful for and much to look forward to.
It’s amazing to think back to 1869 and imagine what our founders envisioned at the university’s inception. I believe they would be tremendously proud of the global campus we have become today, with partnerships around the world and more than 3,000 international students and scholars who call Nebraska home.
At Nebraska, we value diversity, hard work, and partnership with those around us. I hope this inaugural annual report will clearly demonstrate the tremendous reach and impact that UNL’s global engagement has on our state, nation, and world. In the 2019 N150 State of the University address, Chancellor Ronnie Green charged us to expand our work as a world-leading, 21st Century, land-grant university. As we reflect upon our successes in 2019 and prepare to address current global issues, I am confident we are well on our way and look forward to what we can accomplish going forward.
Josh Davis, J.D.Associate Vice Chancellor for Global Affairs & Senior International Officer

Towards the Next 150 Years
As the University of Nebraska-Lincoln looks forward to the next 150 years of becoming a transformative, world-leading public research institution, global engagement and partnerships will continue to be a crucial piece of what defines us.
2020 will not only mark the start of a new decade for UNL, but also a critical launch point with the reveal of the N2025 Strategic Plan and Nebraska’s first global engagement strategy. We are proud of all of our Husker administrators, faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners, and we look forward to continue impacting the world and fulfilling our mission of teaching, research and service.
