Statement from University of Nebraska System President Ted Carter on Governor Ricketts signing the 2021-23 state budget package:
"Governor Ricketts' approval of the state budget package today sends a strong message of support for access, quality education and workforce growth in Nebraska. The historic investments included in this budget will benefit students, families and Nebraska taxpayers for generations to come. We are especially grateful for the Governor's leadership on the Nebraska Career Scholarships, which are already helping our state retain more top talent for the workforce. The University of Nebraska is in a position of strength as we emerge from a challenging period, and that is thanks in great part to our elected leaders who recognize the critical importance of affordable, excellent higher education for the people of our state."
