The UNL was established in 1869. The university is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. UNL is a land-grant university and a member of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU).
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is one of the nation's leading teaching institutions, and a research leader with a wide array of grant-funded projects aimed at broadening knowledge in the sciences and humanities.
The Intensive English Program (IEP) at UNL conducts five 8-week sessions during the academic year. The primary mission of the IEP is to help students prepare for academic study at UNL or other institutions where English is the language of instruction. However, many students who undertake study in the IEP have other goals, and some come simply for the fun and challenge of a comprehensive English curriculum in the heartland of the United States. The IEP always offers quality instruction in the core skill areas of grammar/usage, reading/writing, and listening/speaking. Special topics courses are offered on a rotating basis. Some of the more recent ones have focused on American Topics, Pronunciation, TOEFLA Preparation, and Current Events. It keeps classes small and maintain multiple levels of study. The classroom isn't the only learning environment in the IEP, though. Once or twice each session, faculty, staff, and students give the books a rest for a day and take a cultural field trip. Recent activities have included a tour of the Nebraska state Capitol, bowling, ice skating, an all-American cook-out, and a visit to a pumpkin patch with young students from Norwood Park elementary school in Lincoln.
Moreover, the IEP starts to offer a 4-week session between our summer and first fall 8-week sessions. This condensed program of study is ideal for those who are unable to commit or uncertain about committing to a lengthier program. It can also fill a potentially troublesome gap in the study of IEP students who plan to continue into the first fall session from the full summer session. The 4-week session is formally known as the American Culture Program in order to reflect the greater emphasis on the cultural aspect of the curriculum.
