Transparency at the University of Nebraska
As outlined in our Five-Year Strategy, Nebraskans expect their University to operate with common sense and prudence. As we take care of our resources and look for opportunities to be more effective and efficient, the University of Nebraska will hold ourselves to a high standard of transparency. We recognize that we have a responsibility to demonstrate accountability to those who invest their resources in us.
To that end, we are providing greater access to information for the faculty, staff, students and the communities we serve. This page represents some of the most frequently requested information by NU constituencies. Information will be added as needed. Nebraskans should know what to expect from their University. We pledge to work every day to maintain the trust and confidence of the people of our state.
