Welcome to the Office of Academic Affairs

Welcome to the University of New Orleans—“The Heartbeat of the Crescent City.” As the only public, urban research university in Louisiana, UNO is uniquely positioned to serve the most diverse student population in the state by offering cutting-edge academic programs with degrees at the baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate level. UNO also prides itself on its longstanding community partnerships that enhance the quality of life in the Greater New Orleans Metropolitan area.   I encourage you to browse the Academic Affairs website and use the links to the College websites to learn more about the variety of academic programs available and ongoing community outreach activities delivered by our outstanding faculty and staff.
