The Role of Private Support at the University
While UNO is a state university, state appropriations alone are not sufficient to cover the rising costs of higher education. In addition UNO, like other public universities, has had a continued reduction in state support over the past several years. Therefore we must seek ways to diversify and increase other sources of revenues, including private gift fund raising.
Private donations will allow UNO to strengthen the current public-private partnership that currently exists. These funds will ensure that we will be able to continue to offer quality education with superior faculty, cutting-edge research and service programs as well as critically important student and academic services.
