University of Nebraska President Ted Carter today issued the following statement on Gov. Pete Ricketts’ 2021-23 state budget proposal, which fully funds NU’s appropriation request:
"The budget package proposed today by Governor Ricketts provides for affordable, outstanding education at the University of Nebraska. This budget clears the way for our two-year tuition freeze, which will make a University education more accessible for thousands of students and families. And the Governor’s commitment to the Nebraska Career Scholarships is a forward-thinking investment in access and workforce development. I am grateful that our elected leaders recognize the importance of a strong public university, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the Governor and members of the Legislature to grow our state for the future."
