Explore Global Learning Opportunities
Through the Global Learning Hub, in-person and online learners can explore global learning opportunities in Nebraska and beyond. The Hub is a learning platform with both physical and virtual components that highlights the expanse of international programming, activities and engagement within the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR). Students, faculty and staff can further expand their global network by utilizing it as a resource that will work to facilitate international teaching and learning, connections with scholars from around the globe, and campus/community engagement and programming to enhance the global mindset of the next generation of leaders. The Hub will also facilitate an increased sense of belonging and wellness for both domestic and international students as well as a platform for our global community of learners to interact with and learn from each other.
