The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln

As a land-grant university, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Nebraska) has an overriding responsibility to serve the people of our state by attracting and educating young talent. As a member of the Big Ten Conference, as a "U.S. News & World Report" top tier research public university and as one of "Kiplinger’s” Best Value public colleges and universities, Nebraska stands out to prospective students and families as a place where undergraduates - whether from our state, another state or another country - are welcomed and supported. Nebraska faculty and staff believe each student matters and work hard to help them feel like they belong on campus. Nebraska offers world-class programs of study to match any area of interest and is recognized by the Carnegie Foundation as a "Research University (very high research activity).” Nearly 26,000 students are enrolled in Nebraska’s nine colleges: Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, Architecture, Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education and Human Sciences, Engineering, Hixson-Lied Fine and Performing Arts, Journalism and Mass Communications, and Law. Nebraska offers 183 bachelor’s degree programs. This includes 36 majors in which a student can earn more than one type of bachelor’s degree (e.g. BA, BS, BFA, BM). At the graduate level, UNL offers 44 doctoral degree programs and 70 master’s degree programs. At the professional level, Nebraska has five doctoral and three master’s degree professional programs.
