Local Interest

Last summer, hundreds of northeast Nebraskans gathered over the course of a month in coffee shops, community centers, pole barns and at county fairs to participate in candid discussions of their needs. 

Community members were clear: More collaboration between PK-12 schools and institutions of higher education is required, along with agricultural workforce development and improved water quality. They also weighed in on how the Haskell Agricultural Laboratory could help address these issues.

As a result of those conversations, I and other University of Nebraska-Lincoln leaders have concluded that HAL should play a key role in expanding the university’s engagement in the region.

The office hours at the Haskell Ag Lab will change to 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This change will be effective starting Monday, December 3, 2018.
