University of Nebraska Campuses

The University of Nebraska was founded on February 15, 1869, less than two years after Nebraska became the nation's 37th state. Founded in Lincoln, the university included a medical center in Omaha beginning in 1902. The University was reorganized under a 1968 act of the Nebraska Legislature. The legislation provided for the addition of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (formerly the municipal University of Omaha) and designated the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of Nebraska Medical Center as separate campuses. In 1991, the University of Nebraska at Kearney (formerly Kearney State College) became a campus of the university. The university also includes many research, extension, and service facilities statewide (Source: NU Web Site).
