“The adversaries and potential adversaries and challenges we face in the 21st century have global ramifications. Partners like the National Strategic Research Institute make sure we think about those challenges every day and make sure we’re doing business the right way. The collective intellect and legal expertise they have assembled, whether they work for the military, academia or industry are essential to that effort."
General John E. Hyten
“I remain staunchly committed to the growth and demand for the University of Nebraska’s University-Affiliated Research Center designation through the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Since 2012, the National Strategic Research Institute has skillfully carried this designation for our university, leading critical research, development, engineering and training for a wide range of Department of Defense sponsors. Because of the NSRI’s important work, the expanded investments we continue to make across our nationally recognized academic and research programs are vital for campuses, our partners, our sponsors and our combined futures.”
Dr. Susan Fritz
Interim President, University of Nebraska
