Huskers for Higher Education

Advocate for the university by being a voice in support of critical initiatives and proposals. Through Huskers for Higher Education, we will contact you with information and resources you need to be active during the state’s legislative or election cycle. 

UNL’s impact on the state of Nebraska reaches far beyond Lincoln – the university’s economic impact exceeds $2 billion and UNL Extension touches all 93 state counties. We need passionate volunteers who are willing to contact state senators and share vital information through calls to action. 

HHE is not a lobbying program, and we will not tell you how to vote on issues. 

If you feel strongly about the importance of higher education to our state’s future, sign up to volunteer here.
