CASNR Community:

We have reasons for optimism and hope. The future is bright, and now is the time for us to define, co-create and shape the future. For the College of Agricultural and Natural Resources, we are committed to our land-grant mission and will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the College on June 25 of 2022.

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. CASNR undergraduate programs prepare today's students for tomorrow's greatest local, state, and global challenges around food, energy, water, and societal systems. Our students are inspired to take their development beyond the classroom and make their mark on the world.

Our students are doing some pretty amazing things and impacting the future of agriculture. CASNR students are engaged in campus-based research and creative activities, contribute to IANR’s statewide outreach and engagement programming, extend their learning beyond the classroom through internships and experiential learning, and are giving back through service learning and community engagement.

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 the destination for the continuum of learners seeking diverse educational pathways at the nexus of food, energy, water, and societal systems (FEWS2).

Together – we will ensure a bright future for our CASNR students and for Nebraska!
