IANR's Global Vision
Agriculture & natural resources have a unique place in Nebraska and provide the foundation for a number of UNL’s international partnerships and initiatives. As a 21st century land-grant institution, Nebraska’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources aims to make an impact not only locally and nationally, but also globally. To become more strategically aligned with our core mission areas, our globally-focused staff are now embedded into the research, innovation, teaching and learning areas they directly impact. This effort is further advanced by becoming a comprehensively internationalized institution. To us, comprehensive internationalization means that:
…global perspectives are interwoven into the IANR’s tripartite mission of education, research, and extension
…students are prepared to live, work, and serve in our increasingly interconnected world
…faculty are actively engaged in internationally collaborative efforts to address the grand challenges of our time
...IANR is a strong international economic development partner for the state of Nebraska and its people.

No country or region is immune to their impacts, which cost the global economy billions of dollars each year and range from the loss of life, livelihoods and biodiversity to water and food insecurity, disruption in the energy, transportation and tourism sectors, as well as forced migration, displacement and conflicts over scarce resources.

African fellows work with IANR faculty to tackle plant health, international trade
by Geitner Simmons, IANR Media
Each year, crop contamination by disease and pests costs producers and industry an estimated $220 billion worldwide. That loss hits African countries especially hard. If those countries can make progress in reducing such contamination and the trade barriers related to it, the boost to their exports and long-term economic development could be tremendous.
