Nebraska is one of 10 states found in the Great Plains. The largely rural state is one of the least-densely populated in the country, as 89% of cities in the state have fewer than 3,000 people. There are several public and private colleges in the state, many of which are in Omaha, its largest city. The Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education oversees Nebraska’s higher education system, conducting research on higher education issues, authorizing academic programs, administering student financial aid programs, and more. Recent reports by the commission have looked at graduate outcomes by college, highlighting which majors produce graduates most likely to be employed in Nebraska and which majors produce the highest wages.
