The Nexus


Northeast students will build upon family traditions and discover new ways of exploring agriculture to create a sustainable future. As new technologies and innovations in agriculture become available, students must explore new ways of producing food and conserving water and other natural resources to continue the long tradition of agricultural excellence in Nebraska.

Incorporating modern farming techniques like precision agriculture and best practices from applied research will help producers make data-driven decisions to increase production and reduce food and water insecurity.

Applied Research
The Agriculture & Water Center of Excellence will explore innovative, hands-on experiential learning opportunities related to crop and livestock production as well as improved conservation practices.

Applied research allows students to study the most current agronomic practices and science, experiment with new technologies, ask and answer critical questions, and prepare for the workforce.

Students enter the workforce incorporating these best practices and new technologies, becoming the next generation of early adopters and leaders in agriculture.

Nexus is More Than a Campaign
It is an ecosystem of success, innovation, and partnership. It exemplifies the connection of Northeast Community College to businesses, manufacturers, communities, and the world. Expanding on the achievement of Nebraska’s agriculture leadership, Northeast Community College plays an integral role in fostering educational opportunities for students and the community it serves.


For communities, businesses, manufacturers, and producers, a highly qualified workforce with expert skills and hands-on experience is needed to grow and meet the demands of today’s competitive environment.

At the Agriculture & Water Center of Excellence, Northeast is preparing students with knowledge and skills needed in the workforce. Graduates will implement best practices using the latest technologies to support business growth, increase yields, and conserve natural resources.
