About the Heuermann Lectures

The Heuermann Lectures focus on providing security – and here security means enough to sustain the world – in the areas of food, natural resources, and renewable energy for people, as well as on securing the sustainability of rural communities where the vital work of producing food and renewable energy occurs.

Through the Heuermann Lectures Nebraskans and others can participate in conversations with diverse leaders in various walks of life who are working to meet the world’s food and food-related challenges. All Heuermann Lectures are streamed live at this site.

This public lecture series in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is made possible through a gift from B. Keith and Norma Heuermann of Phillips, Nebraska. The Heuermanns are long-time university supporters with a strong commitment to Nebraska’s production agriculture, natural resources, rural areas and people.

All lectures will be video streamed live from this site and recorded for later viewing. A link for viewing will be available the day of each event. Heuermann Lectures are broadcast on NET2 World at a date following the lecture.
