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.

Mentors matter: student follows former lecturer, graduates from NebraskaThis is a continuation of our "IANR is Global" series, which highlights the many ways internationalization is woven through the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources: through research collaboration, government and private industry partnerships, extension work, student educational experiences and beyond. Mentors, whether in the form of advisors, professors or supervisors can have a lifelong impact. Rufus Akinrinlola, who graduates with his Master’s degree in plant pathology this week, can attest to that, as a former mentor who later landed in Nebraska was the catalyst that brought him to study here.
