"We thank the Legislature for supporting the good work of the Appropriations Committee and Governor Pillen in providing funding that will help us keep tuition affordable and provide quality education. The investments in the UNK-UNMC rural health facility and the Nebraska Career Scholarships in particular will have a major impact on our state's workforce. We are grateful to elected leaders for their partnership on these important efforts.
"The University of Nebraska is not immune to the headwinds facing all of higher education. We have hard budget work ahead. Our priority is to use the resources Nebraskans entrust to us to create the greatest possible impact for students and the state."
