“After graduating from UNK, I was fortunate enough to jump right into
a career related to my major. This was possible because UNK helped
me get connected with the community. These connections gave me the
opportunities I needed to secure a future in Kearney, which in turn fosters
growth of businesses and neighborhoods here. UNK truly opens doors for
graduates and helps them become a part of the community.”

KEARNEY — Construction
of the new Health Sciences
Education Complex is on track,
and the $19 million facility is
scheduled to open in time for
the 2015 fall semester.
“We’re well into construc-
tion, and I think we’re seeing
no major delays,” UNK Chan-
cellor Doug Kristensen said.
“From my perspective, they’re
pretty much on course, which
means we will have it enclosed
and they’ll work through the
winter.”
The new facility is a collabo-
rative effort with the University
of Nebraska Medical Center
and will house seven programs:
nursing and graduate nursing,
physician assistants, physical
therapy, clinical laboratory
science, medical nutrition,
radiography and diagnostic
medical sonography. The
30,000-square-foot facility
will be located on UNK’s West
Campus, and the programs will
be able to educate a maximum
of 300 students.
“This will be absolutely
transformative, not only in the
delivery of seven new programs
across the nursing and allied
health areas on our campus that
are UNMC programs, but in
terms of the impact on our stu-
dents,” Charles Bicak, UNK’s
