Virginia-Nebraska Alliance

Designed to increase minority participation in health care careers, the Virginia-Nebraska Alliance is a partnership between UNMC and 11 Virigina area universities. Many are part of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) network.

Through student summer programs and faculty exchanges, the Alliance seeks to diversify the workforce in areas of patient care and research. An additional goal is to increase funding for research designed to reduce health disparities and improve outcomes.
