Support the Center for Great Plains Studies

Support the Center for Great Plains Studies

The Center for Great Plains Studies is a regional research and teaching program established in 1976 at the University of Nebraska.

The mission of the Center is to foster study of the people and environment of the Great Plains.

The Center operates the Great Plains Art Museum, the Plains Humanities Alliance, undergraduate and graduate programs, various scholarly projects, and outreach programs; it publishes Great Plains Quarterly and Great Plains Research; it presents public lectures and interdisciplinary symposia. Much of its work is accomplished by its Fellows and Associate Fellows.

Private support has been critical to the development of the center as it is known today. Please consider helping the Center for Great Plains Studies achieve its mission of fostering the study of people and the environment in the sparsely populated Great Plains.
