Nebraska Focused: Building Our Future

Air Date: 02/03/2022

Nebraska - and the U.S. - are grappling with a shortage of healthcare workers, educators, and STEM workers. With unknowns like climate change and global pandemics, how do you predict - and plan for - the future? As the University of Nebraska plans for its own future, it also has a responsibility to the community.

Nebraska Focused: Building the Future is a one-hour program which visits all four University of Nebraska campuses (UNK, UNL, UNMC, UNO) to take a look at the new and innovative ways that the University of Nebraska is recruiting and training the workforce of the future. Plus, learn how University researchers are working across disciplines to create foods to improve human health at the Nebraska Food For Health Center.

This Connects program is a partnership with the University of Nebraska Foundation.

The University of Nebraska serves as the licensee of the Nebraska Public Media flagship station KUON-TV.
