Our Mission

The University of Nebraska—through its four campuses—strives to be the best public university in the country as measured by the impact we have on our people and our state, and—through them—the world.

Rooted In Excellence

At the University of Nebraska, we're proud of our rich history of distance education. From paper-based correspondence courses in the early 1900s to our innovative online programs today, we've always worked to connect students across the state—and the world—with an exceptional education.

We pride ourselves on offering student-centered, intellectually-challenging courses and programs that grow students into leaders and equip them with the knowledge and tools they need for success, today and in their future.

A University of Nebraska Degree, Wherever You Are

We understand that a traditional educational journey or on-campus experience isn't the right fit for every student. The University of Nebraska is committed to providing access to an affordable, flexible and high-quality online education wherever you are in your life or in your career.
