Can Nebraska get back into the AAU

Nebraska was kicked out of the AAU a few years ago because their research budget didn’t meet the guidelines, as the Ag college doesn’t get full credit and the med center is a separate unit.

But there are plans at UNL to rework some budgeary things so that Nebraska meets the guidelines again, at which point it may reapply for admission to the AAU.

Outgoing Nebraska President Carter has been working on this project and will presumably be a strong advocate for Nebraska’s readmission when he takes over at Ohio State, which also fiddled with its multi-unit budget to better meet AAU guidelines.

The LJS has a story on this, but I’m not going to provide a link because I’m not sure whether it would work.
