Public Service Inventory
The Coordinating Commission keeps an inventory of Public Services operated by Public Postsecondary institutions. We have them divided into seven categories.
The following files are very large. They may take anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes to download from our server.
- Cooperative Extension - This category will include the services provided through the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Nebraska that are available to the general public. It does not include credit courses or basic research programs.
- Public Broadcasting - This category includes the operation of radio and television stations that carry programs of general interest to the public such as news, weather, sports, music, and entertainment. It does not include broadcasting services exclusively for the delivery of credit instruction through radio or television signals.
- Cultural and Recreational Activities - This category includes the use of campus facilities to provide cultural and entertainment events such as concerts and theater series that are for the general public. It also includes the use of campus facilities for organized particpatory recreational, personal fitness, and athletic activities for non-students.
- Personal Development Activities - This category includes non-credit courses offered either on or off campus designed for personal development or a vocational interest. It may include English as a Second Language, computer skills, adult basic education, personal finance topics, etc.
- Economic Development Activities - This category includes activities and programs that use the resources of the institution to promote economic development of the community, the region, or the state. It includes customized training for business or industry, small business development centers, technology transfer initiatives, and applied research units with a primary purpose of meeting special needs of local businesses or industry.
- Continuing Education Programs for Occupations and Professions - Instructional programs that are usually non-credit and that provide opportunities for individuals to receive information and/or training related to new developments in their chosen occupation or profession.
- Community Services - This category includes programs and activities that provide access for the general public to the resources of the institution and that are not included in the first six categories listed above. Examples may include health care services or facilities such as teaching hospitals or clinics, testing services, and the use of campus facilities for meetings or conferences for community groups or professional organizations.
