The University of Nebraska has created the Nebraska University Center for Information Assurance (NUCIA) to establish an international presence in the information assurance community. We are teachers and students working together to improve the posture of information assurance awareness locally, regionally and nationally.


  • Develop information assurance professionals through degree, non-degree, and public information programs
  • Conduct applied research that contributes to the theory and practice of information assurance
  • Form strategic partnerships with external organizations in a long term program of community outreach, collaborating on both the theory and practice of information assurance


NUCIA participates in the Federal Scholarship for Service program. For more details on this program visit the US Office of Personnel Management.
