The Need

Integrate Research & Technology

Additional faculty is needed to provide hands-on learning experiences.

  • As new technologies are introduced into the workforce and as new careers evolve, education must adjust and continue to incorporate best practices
  • Additional faculty are needed to coordinate applied research opportunities and integrate learning into the classroom

My Nexus Story

“We have approximately 9 locations in northeast Nebraska where on average we will have anywhere from 2-3 Northeast interns per location. It’s been a very good relationship. The students do various jobs in the field as well as some administrative duties.”
