State Governmental Relations
The University of Nebraska’s state governmental relations office works to build productive relationships with the state legislature, governor and other policy makers to increase understanding of the university’s role in Nebraska’s economic future. The director and representatives of each campus work with government leaders to secure appropriate financial support to further the university’s mission as the state’s only public university.

A network of university "ambassadors" actively assists in information and advocacy efforts. Ambassadors are volunteers from across the state and beyond who share a commitment to higher education and to the University of Nebraska. The network keeps alumni, parents, donors and friends informed of important issues, including budget and legislative issues. You can be as involved as you wish. We'll provide information in simple language that you can share with others as your time and interest permit. The program is informal, with mailings or contact as needed and occasional gatherings to share progress and hear your concerns and ideas. You'll also find information and updates on this web site.
