Looking Back at 2018

Happy Winter Holidays!
Happy Winter Holidays!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As we draw closure to 2018, we look back on our successes and set our sights on next year's goals. Our accomplishments are numerous and Global Nebraska has so many reasons to celebrate.

In 2018, we launched the new Global Nebraska portal site and began our quest to map internationalization; we created strategic partnerships with stellar institutions across the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Europe; we received prestigious grant awards to advance our internationalization efforts on campus; we bolstered on-campus support for our international students and scholars; we launched the "Global Nebraska Experience" video campaign, showcasing the voices of our international students and alumni in their native languages; we worked with faculty across the institution to expand education abroad faculty-led programs; and we created new scholarship opportunities for study abroad, to name a few. It is with this great momentum that I know Global Nebraska will approach 2019.

"And now, let us welcome the New Year, full of things that never were." - Rainer Maria Rilke
