What is IANR Global Engagement?
Welcome! Whether you're a student, faculty member or staff in the area of agriculture and natural resources, we want to help you go global in your research, education, extension work, and beyond. Stop by our offices at 202 Agricultural Hall on East Campus, or drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students: check out the CASNR Global Learning Hub, your source for more opportunities to go global.
Faculty: we invite you to review these current international funding opportunities.
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:
…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.
