The University of Nebraska system has a significant impact on Nebraska’s workforce and economy. A recent report found:

  • The NU System generates $9 for every $1 the state invests.
  • The University generated $5.8 billion in economic impact in FY21.
  • 1 out of every 7 working-age Nebraskans holds an NU degree.

The University system has strong impacts on the individual level, too. UNMC and UNL alum, Dr. Grant Essink, shares how his education in Nebraska has impacted him.
