    The Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska was cre­ated by an act of the Ne­braska state leg­is­la­ture in 1869, two years after Ne­braska was ad­mit­ted into the Union as the 37th state. The law de­scribed the new uni­ver­sity's aims: "The ob­ject of such in­sti­tu­tion shall be to af­ford to the in­hab­i­tants of the state the means of ac­quir­ing a thor­ough knowl­edge of the var­i­ous branches of lit­er­a­ture, sci­ence, and the arts." The school re­ceived an ini­tial land grant of about 130,000 acres (53,000 ha) through the Mor­rill Act of 1862. Cam­pus con­struc­tion began in Sep­tem­ber 1869 with Uni­ver­sity Hall at 11th and S Streets, and two years later the Uni­ver­sity wel­comed its in­au­gural class of 20 col­le­giate stu­dents along with 110 prepara­tory students. By 1873, the Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska had of­fered its first two de­grees to its in­au­gural grad­u­at­ing class. The school's en­roll­ment and bud­get re­mained rel­a­tively small until about 20 years after its found­ing...

    In 1869, the orig­i­nal Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska cam­pus was laid out on four city blocks and com­prised one build­ing called Uni­ver­sity Hall. Cur­rently, the uni­ver­sity has three cam­puses, to­tal­ing 2,815 acres (1,139 ha): City Cam­pus, north of down­town Lin­coln; Ne­braska In­no­va­tion Cam­pus, just north­east of City Cam­pus on the old Ne­braska State Fairgrounds; and East Cam­pus, one mile east of City Cam­pus. Both City and East cam­puses in­clude aca­d­e­mic and re­search fa­cil­i­ties, li­braries, recre­ation cen­ters, and res­i­den­tial build­ings. They both fea­ture var­i­ous sup­port build­ings for power and net­work­ing, as well as in-ground in­fra­struc­ture sup­port­ing ad­vanced com­put­ing, power dis­tri­b­u­tion, and en­ergy-ef­fi­cient heat­ing and cool­ing from cen­tral plants. Both cam­puses are heav­ily land­scaped, with the grounds func­tion­ing as a re­search mis­sion of the uni­ver­sity; they are ad­min­is­tered as the UNL Botan­i­cal Gar­den and Arbo...

    Admissions and demographics

    Ad­mis­sion to the Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska–Lin­coln is rated "more se­lec­tive" by U.S. News & World Re­port. US News also ranks Ne­braska as the #139 na­tional uni­ver­sity in the country. For the 2015 fall se­mes­ter, NU re­ceived 9,724 fresh­men ap­pli­ca­tions; 7,425 were ad­mit­ted (76.4 per­cent) and 4,628 en­rolled. The high school grade point av­er­age (GPA) of en­rolled fresh­men was 3.65, while the mid­dle 50 per­cent range of SAT scores was 500–630 for crit­i­cal read­ing and 500...

    The uni­ver­sity's li­braries, which com­bine to offer 3.5 mil­lion vol­umes, are the only set of com­pre­hen­sive re­search li­braries in Ne­braska. The Don L. Love Memo­r­ial Li­brary is the main li­brary on City Cam­pus and houses col­lec­tions on so­cial sci­ences and hu­man­i­ties.Other aca­d­e­mic dis­ci­plines are housed in seven branch lo­ca­tions on cam­pus: 1.

    The Ne­braska Corn­huskers (often ab­bre­vi­ated to Huskers) are the in­ter­col­le­giate ath­letic teams that rep­re­sent the Uni­ver­sity of Ne­braska–Lin­coln. The uni­ver­sity is a mem­ber of the Big Ten Con­fer­ence and the Corn­huskers com­pete in NCAA Di­vi­sion I, field­ing 22 var­sity teams (9 men's, 13 women's) in 15 sports.

    About 78 per­cent of NU's stu­dents are from Ne­braska, but the re­main­ing 22 per­cent is made up of stu­dents from all forty-nine other states and 114 for­eign coun­tries. On-cam­pus stu­dents are mem­bers of the UNL Res­i­dence Hall As­so­ci­a­tion, which serves as the gov­ern­ing body for res­i­dence halls. Se­lect hon­orary se­niors in­clude the Ne­braska-only So­ci­ety of In­no­cents and the Black Masque chap­ter of Mor­tar Board.

    Many UNL alumni have had con­sid­er­able suc­cess in ath­let­ics, sci­en­tific re­search, pub­lic ser­vice, ed­u­ca­tion, and busi­ness. No­table alumni in­clude: 1.

    Nebraska has had 34 head coaches in the program's history. Scott Frost has held the position since December 2, 2017.:207 Six past Nebraska head coaches have been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame: Eddie N. Robinson, Fielding H. Yost, Dana X. Bible, Biff Jones, Bob Devaney, and Tom Osborne. Osborne is the program's all-time leader in most major categories; his .836 career winning percentage is fourth-highest in major college football history. Thirteen Nebraska coaches have won a conference championship at the school, and Devaney and Osborne combined to win five national titles.

    National championships

    Nebraska has won five consensus national championships from NCAA-designated major selectors.:113–114 Unclaimed national championships Nebraska has been awarded nine other national championships from various polling organizations that the school does not claim. † Co-champions ‡ Claimed by both Nebraska :206 and Oklahomadue to a dispute over Oklahoma's forfeiture of games

    Nebraska has played in 53 bowl games, including an NCAA-record 35 straight from 1969 to 2003, with a record of 26–27.

    Memorial Stadium, known as The Sea of Red, has been home of the Cornhuskers since 1923 and is the location of an ongoing NCAA-record 375-game sellout streak. The sellout streak dates back to 1962, Bob Devaney's first season at Nebraska. The stadium becomes the "third-largest city in Nebraska" on game days, as its capacity exceeds that of every Nebraska town except for Omahaand Lincoln. The stadium has undergone a series of expansion since 1923, bringing the official capacity to 85,458. The largest crowd in Memorial Stadium history occurred on September 20, 2014, a Nebraska win over Miamiwith an announced attendance of 91,585. Three statues sit outside of the stadium. The oldest, unveiled in 1997, depicts six Nebraska defenders tackling a ball carrier. Creator Fred Hoppe said, "the monument displays the sense of pride that Nebraskans have for their football team." In 2006, Hoppe created a statue of Tom Osborne with his arm around quarterback Brook Berringer, which is located outside...

    Tunnel Walk Since 1994, Nebraska's home games have opened with the "Tunnel Walk". Just before kickoff, Memorial Stadium plays "Sirius" as the Huskers take the field from the northwest tunnel. Immediately before the Tunnel Walk, the west side of Memorial Stadium yells "Husker" in unison, while the east side responds with "Power." Balloon release At every home game since the 1930s, fans have released red helium balloons when the Huskers score their first points. In 2012, a global helium shortage threatened the tradition, but the university allowed for a limited number of balloon releases throughout the season.The tradition returned to normal the following year. Walk-on program Nebraska has a long-standing walk-on program, designed to attract student-athletes who did not receive scholarship offers.

    略歴

    1869年にモリル・ランドグラント法に基づくランドグラント大学として創立された。当初ネブラスカ大学システムに所属している唯一の大学だったので、学校名は単にネブラスカ大学であり、長年そのように呼ばれていた。学校創立99年目の1968年に同州のオマハ大学がネブラスカ大学システムに加盟したことにより、ネブラスカ大学リンカーン校と呼ばれるようになった(同時にオマハ大学はネブラスカ大学オマハ校に改名)。 1900年に設立されたアメリカ大学協会に1909年より加盟していたが、2011年に除名された。これは同協会の定める評価基準の幾つかを、ネブラスカ大学リンカーン校が満たしていないと他のメンバーに判断されたためである。リンカーン校に医学部が設置されていないこと、全米ランキング上位に評価される農学部の存在がアメリカ大学協会によって考慮されなかったことなどが原因として挙げられている。 2011年にはビッグテンカンファレンスに招待され、その正式メンバーとなった。同年、教育コンソーシアムの一つであるCIC(Committee on Institutional Cooperation)にも参加している。

    メインキャンパスとして、リンカーン市の中心部に近いシティキャンパスと、そこから数キロメートル離れたイーストキャンパスが存在している。シティキャンパスには教養学部・教育学部・芸術学部・経営学部・ジャーナリズム学部・工学部・建築学部の本部が、イーストキャンパスには農学部・法学部の本部がそれぞれ設置されている。シティキャンパスとイーストキャンパスの敷地面積の合計は、約70万坪(前者が約27万坪、後者が約42万坪)。 キャンパス内には博物館・美術館・劇場といった文化施設が点在している。1929年に設立されたシェルドン美術館は、大学付属の美術館としては全米最大級の規模であり、1万2000点を超える北アメリカ美術のコレクションを有している。 大学敷地内で最大の図書館はドン・L・ラヴ記念図書館であり、主に人文科学や社会科学に関する書籍が収集されている。大学全体としておよそ350万冊(290万冊の本、44万部の定期刊行物)の蔵書を保有している。 キャンパス内に収容人数8万人を超えるスタジアムがある。同大学のカレッジフットボールチームの本拠地であり、1962年から現在まで毎試合チケットの売り切れが続いている。試合当日にはリンカーン市内のみならず、近隣のオマハなどから多数の観客が訪れスタジアムを賑わせている。

    ネブラスカ大学リンカーン校のスポーツチームは、ネブラスカ州出身者の俗称に因んでコーンハスカーズまたはハスカーズと呼ばれている。NCAAのディビジョンI(フットボールはディビジョンI-A)、ビッグテンカンファレンスのレジェンドディビジョンに属している。大学のチームカラーは緋色とクリーム色。チームのマスコットキャラクターとして、ハービー・ハスカーとリル・レッドの2種類が活躍している。両方とも白人農夫をデザインしたものだが、前者が大人の姿、後者が子供の姿をしているという違いがある。特にリル・レッドは空気で膨らませる着ぐるみという点で画期的であり、2007年にはその革新性を評価されマスコット栄誉の殿堂にも選出された。 カレッジフットボールでは名門校として知られており、これまで1970年・1971年・1994年・1995年・1997年の5度にわたり全米チャンピオンとなっている。また、最も活躍したカレッジフットボールの選手に贈られるハイズマン賞の受賞者を、これまでに3名輩出している。大学の出身者で、卒業後にNFLにプロ入りした選手も多い(著名な卒業生のリストに一部掲載)。ただし、名将と呼ばれたヘッドコーチのトム・オズボーンが1997年に勇退してからは、チームは弱体化している。 男子体操競技チームも全米屈指の強豪である。特に1970年代後半から1990年代前半にかけて、NCAAのトーナメントで圧倒的な強さを発揮した。1979年・1980年・1981年・1982年・1983年・1988年・1990年・1994年に全米大会で優勝を果たしている。また、同時期には4人のオリンピック金メダリストを輩出している。 ネブラスカ大学リンカーン校の女子バレーボールチームは、1995年・2000年・2006年の3度にわたり全米チャンピオンとなった。

    USNEWSのNATIONAL UNIVERSITY RANKINGでは全米96位、TOP PUBLIC SCHOOL RANKINGでは全米47位にランキングされている。上海交通大学発表のAcademic Ranking of World Universities - 2011ではNational Ranking69-89位、World Rankingで151-200位とランキングされた。Academic Ranking of World Universities(ARWU)ではWorld ranking152-200位、National Rankingでは全米70-89位にランキングされている。 中西部において安定的に高位にランキングされる歴史のある総合大学である。USNEWSには「もっと選択されるべき大学」と評価された。
