How you can help during this uncertain time

Infectious disease experts conduct regular training practices to be prepared to care for patients who may require their medical skills.

We are in uncharted territory.

A national emergency declaration in response to a pandemic virus is new to all of us, and we want to be both sensitive and responsive to the unique situation of every single student, every alumnus and every friend of the University of Nebraska.

With economic uncertainty a reality for many, we ask for financial support with prudence. At the same time, some in our university family have reached out to ask how they can help, and some student support organizations have reached out to seek assistance.

We’ve highlighted some funds here that allow you to help our students, patients and communities during this public health crisis.

Whether you’re able to give at this time or not, we extend our wishes for your health and safety.
