CASNR Community – Students, Staff, Faculty and Emeriti:

2020 has challenged us to innovate as we work to live out our land-grant mission. We have adapted our teaching and learning programming for this unique time in history, and I remain inspired by the commitment of our faculty and staff. They continue to do amazing work that advances the vision, mission, and goals of our academic programs, the College, the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I am also incredibly proud of our students for their dedication to their education, optimism for the future, and their ability to adapt.

CASNR serves as a hub for preparing students to lead the talented workforce of their generation by attracting change-makers and future leaders to earn their education in Nebraska. The college is committed to ensuring a talented workforce for the state of Nebraska, and that starts by helping our students discover their unique strengths and talents. To guide them on this exploration, we foster an inclusive environment that empowers students to co-create their learning experiences in a manner that will prepare them for a career that aligns with their passion.

This year, we graduated our second-largest class in CASNR history. I am so proud of our graduates for their resilience. They have learned and grown from the adversities of 2020 and are prepared to address the big challenges related to food- and water-security, energy use, the environment and more. I am confident that they are going to do great things and, ultimately, make the world a better place.

We would not be where we are today without our great alumni and friends who generously support our students and advance our mission to be Nebraska’s 21st century College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Thank you for your continued support of CASNR.

Together – we will rise above the challenges this year has brought and help ensure a bright future for our CASNR students and for Nebraska!
