IntroductionUNL’s 2013 master plan, Plan Big, provides a framework for growth to ensure the highest quality campus learning and research environments are created to help the university achieve its goals and mission. As Nebraska’s only land-grant, comprehensive, research university, UNL’s mission is to teach, to conduct research, and to serve the broader Nebraska community.
With the university’s June 2010 entrance to the Big Ten, the UNL community has broadened in scope. Consistent with an internationally-significant Big Ten institution, Plan Big aspires to provide the physical framework for UNL to grow and strengthen its place among national peers in academics, research and athletics. Plan Big encourages flexibility and entrepreneurship, and positions the university to anticipate and adapt to change while always building toward a long-term vision of campus and community.
