CASNR Fall 2019 Update

An increasing number of Nebraskans can be found in the 2019-20 freshman class in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. According to the annual census taken on the sixth day of classes, there are 462 new students from Nebraska in CASNR, an increase of 10.3% compared to last year.

Undergraduate enrollment in CASNR rose to 2,471, an increase of 2.0% from 2018-19 and overall enrollment in CASNR increased to 3,222.

“We’re thrilled to welcome so many new students from Nebraska to CASNR,” said Dean Tiffany Heng-Moss. “The College is committed to ensuring a talented workforce for the state 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 cocreate their learning experiences in a manner that will prepare them for a career that aligns with their passion.”

CASNR has created numerous opportunities for students to take advantage of their time in the College, to help them grow both professionally and personally. Traveling abroad, participating in campus-based research, completing internships, and engaging with the local community are common experiential learning opportunities for CASNR students.

The backbone of these opportunities is the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR). IANR is a leader in the delivery of its tripartite mission of research and discovery, extension and outreach, and teaching and learning. These efforts place IANR, and CASNR, at the forefront of innovation of food production, stewardship of natural resources, efforts to support the prosperity of rural communities, and preparing the next generation of leaders.

In addition to a supportive campus community, Heng-Moss also attributes the increase to a collaborative strategy for smart enrollment growth. “CASNR’s approach to enrollment goes beyond the numbers. We are focused on putting students first and leveraging our competitive strengths and unique programming to prepare the next generation of differencemakers who will address the complex challenges facing society,” Heng-Moss said.

“After graduating our largest class in the history of the College in the spring, to see increased enrollment is a huge win for our CASNR and IANR community,” said Dean Tiffany Heng-Moss. “I want to thank everyone for their commitment to the success of our new and returning students and ensuring their sense of belonging, which is reflected in our strong enrollment.”
