Growing UNL

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman says the school will have to make improvements to its campus if it wants to grow. Perlman says the campus of nearly 25-Thousand could well grow to 30-Thousand if upgrades are made…especially the upgrades proposed for life sciences. . .

Innovation Campus is under construction…two million square feet of new building space for life sciences, industrial arts and other academics.

Perlman says the same formula Nebraska used to build the Cornhusker football team can be used to grow its academics…and attract more students to the Lincoln campus.
