CIC releases annual report

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has rivals across the fields, courts, pools, and tracks of the Big Ten Athletic Conference – but lesser known are the long-standing, high-impact collaborations UNL has with these same universities.

The newly released CIC Annual Report details the collective power and progress of this enterprise, highlighting the Health Disparities initiative between the state Departments of Health and the member schools; faculty collaborations in theater, music education, and business; and data on the economic impact of the scientific workforce and funded research being done across the campuses.

Founded in 1958, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation is composed of the universities of the Big Ten Conference and the University of Chicago. Every year, CIC universities including UNL work together to save millions of dollars on joint purchases and contracts, access resources on other member campuses and unite to solve problems faster.

CIC member universities, including UNL, have a powerful voice in the academic conversation both nationally and globally. With annual research expenditures topping more than $10 billion, more than the Ivy League and the University of California System combined, and spanning eleven states from the High Plains to the Eastern Seaboard, the 15 universities of the CIC have an enormous influence in research and education beyond their geographical footprint.
