News Cites CIC as a "Positive" For UNL

Feb 11, 2011
The chatter around University of Nebraska-Lincoln joining the CIC and the Big Ten conference is ramping up as the date quickly approaches. In a blog discussion on, reporter Adam Rittenberg cites the CIC as a "positive" as UNL makes the transition.

"Nebraska also aligns itself with a stronger group of academic institutions, and membership in the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (the Big Ten's internal academic association) will please those in the administration," Rittenberg wrote in the post dated Feb. 10.

UNL will become a member of the CIC -- and the Big Ten -- on July 1, 2011. For more information on the integration of UNL into the CIC, please visit
