Did You Know?

Did you know that the Council of Independent Nebraska Colleges Foundation's member institutions awarded 40 percent of Nebraska's bachelor's degrees? And educate more than 35,000 students per year? In addition to  producing half of the state's health science bachelor's and advanced degree graduates (including nurses)!

The CINC Foundation supports the missions of its 13 member institutions and promotes the high quality and affordability of member colleges to prospective students and their families.
