University of Nebraska--Lincoln

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is the flagship university for the state of Nebraska. As a comprehensive research university, Nebraska has the distinct role of being the state's land-grant as well as the state university (member of Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities). In the university's early days, renowned educator and administrator Charles Bessey wrote the language for the Hatch Act which on a national scale helped define land-grant and extension services missions, and firmly placed Nebraska among universities whose mission is to do 'practical' research and outreach. But Nebraska also maintains a solid mission for teaching and for research in the arts and sciences. Nebraska, a member of the Big Ten Conference and the Big Ten Academic Alliance, is classified within the Carnegie "Doctoral Universities: Highest Research Activity" category. Nebraska was the first school west of the Mississippi to establish a graduate school. One of the first graduate programs at Nebraska was its Law School, which today is recognized for its quality and leading value.
