Rachel Flaugh’s love of science began as a child on her family’s farm with a curiosity about the health of animals. That curiosity took her on a journey to explore the medical field as a certified nursing assistant in HS and as a chemistry major at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Her journey continued as she headed to Harvard Medical School this past fall after graduating with a B.S. in chemistry with an emphasis in health sciences. While at UNK, she had an internship in a hospital in Norfolk and volunteered as a medical scribe at the Help Care Clinic in Kearney.

Information technology. One of the fastest-growing job sectors in the U.S. is experiencing a deficit in qualified college grads, particularly female grads. In 2015, only 18% of all computing and information science degrees were earned by women.
This is where “Code Crush,” an immersion experience for middle- and high-school girls at UNO's College of Information Science and Technology, comes in. The four-day program introduces girls from across Nebraska to information technology in a friendly and engaging environment—at no cost. This is just one way that NU is working to diversify the IT landscape—and help fill the IT workforce deficit.
