Welcome to IANR

Ask me what we're about in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and I'll tell you people – people, and the food, water and natural resources, and renewable energy that sustain them. All are critically important to our state and world, with its constantly growing population.

We are about educating an intelligent, committed, entrepreneurial workforce, and Nebraska's and the nation's future scientists and leaders. This is a wonderful place to study.

We are about meeting the food, water and renewable energy needs of the present and future, and helping this powerhouse agricultural state sustain and grow its agricultural success. As part of the people's university, you'll find us seeking solutions to Nebraskans' concerns at numerous locations all across Nebraska, including our strategically placed research and extension centers and 83 county extension offices serving all 93 Nebraska counties.

We are about providing Nebraskans research-based information they can put to use in their lives, and opportunities for youth to explore their interests, gain new knowledge and strengthen life skills through 4-H.

In 2007 an independent study found IANR returns a conservative $15 for each state tax dollar invested with us. We are at work for Nebraska, carrying out our land-grant university mission of teaching, research and extension education to sustain and grow Nebraskans' success. We serve as an economic engine for our state, from farms, ranches, and rural communities to agribusiness and biosciences in our urban centers.

When you're in Lincoln we hope you'll visit East Campus, where IANR's main offices are located. Stop by our visitor center in the Dairy Store – it's a great opportunity to treat yourself to ice cream while you're there.

Thank you for visiting our IANR website. We hope you'll come back often.
