Executive Order Statement

NEBRASKA'S Commitment to International Students

We are delighted you are considering NEBRASKA to further your education and we very much look forward to welcoming you to our vibrant and diverse academic community.

We understand that the current global political climate may be giving you pause about studying abroad in the United States but I'm writing to let you know all are welcome at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. We value you and invite you to join us.

Though politics and policies may change, our commitment to you will not. Currently there are over 3,000 international students and scholars studying with us at NEBRASKA. We are committed to being an inclusive, globally-engaged university—one where we are proud to teach and learn with students from over 136 countries.

There is something here for you, no matter your background, language, or home country. There are clubs, groups and events designed to draw you into the NEBRASKA campus culture. There are employees whose job it is to connect you with those opportunities so you can find your home away from home, here.

NEBRASKA is a safe place. Our faculty, employees, and your future classmates will help you achieve success. We see you and understand you may be scared to move so far away from home. We hear you and want to help you find your way. We have stood where you are now: on the cusp of a bright future with questions about what step to take next.

While NEBRASKA may be far from your home country, know that you will have a new home here, too—one where you are accepted, appreciated, and celebrated.

We're here for you. If you have any questions or concerns about studying in the United States, please contact Jackson Wu-Pong at jacksonwu-pong@experience.unl.edu or 402-937-4448 or Paul Dion at pauldion@experience.unl.edu or 402-472-0981.
