IANR Global Engagement
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. The IANR Office of Global Engagement coordinates UNL’s international engagement across these key themes and across IANR’s land-grant mission of education, research, and extension. 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. This is accomplished 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.
To carry out this task, we have assembled a talented, diverse team embedded throughout IANR and equipped with experience spanning every major world region. Meet the Global Engagement Team.
