Lincoln, Neb. — On Aug. 1-3 several new faculty and staff from the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln will participate in the IANR Roads Scholar Tour. The tour allows new IANR personnel to see and experience various regions of Nebraska.

The annual tour was first held in 2008. It was organized to help new personnel learn more about Nebraska businesses and UNL facilities throughout the state. The tour also provides new hires an opportunity to meet innovative people in the region.
