Over 200 UNL faculty and professional staff (see expertise) work on water-related issues ranging from water quality to engineering to economics to crop production to policy to habitat and beyond.  The faculty and staff are in many colleges and departments, but many work collaboratively across disciplines and with public and private sector partners to address the real-world water problems facing Nebraska, the nation and the world. Students can choose majors, internships and research opportunities to fit their interests.  When it comes to preparing for a career related to water, there is no place like Nebraska!
