In a column published in the April 17 edition of the Lincoln Journal Star, Chancellor Ronnie Green writes about how — despite recent scandal at other institutions — the college admissions process remains focused on allowing public access to higher education.

The editorial also outlines how the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and other land-grant institutions remain committed to recruiting students from rural areas.

“And lest anyone think that ‘access,’ ‘public education’ and ‘excellence’ cannot exist in the same sentence — Nebraska has been home to Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ Fellowship winners and patent-earning inventors,” Green said.

The column is available in the Journal Star's print edition and online.
