The University of Nebraska–Lincoln, often referred to as Nebraska, UNL or NU, is a public research university in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. It is the state’s oldest university, and the largest in the University of Nebraska system. The state legislature chartered the university in 1869 as a land-grant university under the 1862 Morrill Act, two years after Nebraska’s statehood into the United States. Around the turn of the 20th century, the university began to expand significantly, hiring professors from eastern schools to teach in the newly organized professional colleges while also producing groundbreaking research in agricultural sciences. The university is organized into eight colleges on two campuses in Lincoln with over 100 classroom buildings and research facilities.
