The University of Nebraska has been voted out of the AAU.

The Association of American Universities' members voted to end UNL's membership recently based on the university's inability to meet certain requirements, Chancellor Harvey Perlman said in an email to faculty and staff Friday. The vote required a two-thirds majority of the group's 62 other members. [Update - Since it appears that many Big Ten fans (alumni) are coming to CN to reference the article above, I'd like you to also take a look an article from the Chronicle of Higher Education that states: What put Nebraska at a particular disadvantage within the AAU is that the university's medical school is part of the statewide system, but not part of the flagship Lincoln campus. So the medical school's research dollars do not count toward Lincoln's AAU numbers. In an analysis conducted last year by The Chronicle, Nebraska's system as a whole outpaces at least 11 current AAU members.
