Personnel and students required to sign up for two-factor authentication

The University of Nebraska is increasing online security for everyone, adding a second layer of protection to your account login process with a tool known as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). With 2FA, users are sent a notification to their phone (tablet, keyfob token or office phone, etc) when logging into a service like email, MyRed, Canvas, or Firefly. Enhanced security will be the norm at the University of Nebraska, and we are encouraging everyone to get a head start in protecting their accounts with Two-factor Authentication, powered by Duo.

This new feature of protection will go into effect for the Lincoln campus on May 15. More-

Six students in the MCRP Program and three Community and Regional Planning faculty members attended the 2020 Nebraska Planning Conference in Kearney, Nebraska, last week.

The gathering was an excellent networking opportunity for the planning students, recent MCRP graduates and other planning practitioners from across Nebraska. More-

Third-year, architecture student Ethan Weiche was recently named as one of the Rural Futures Institute’s student fellows. As a fellow, each student is paired with a community to work on issues of rural significance.
