The University of New Orleans

A Commitment to New Orleans and Beyond

Since its founding, UNO has been committed to diversity and belonging. In 1958, the University of New Orleans opened its doors as the first fully integrated public university in the South. For more than 65 years, we have not strayed from that vision. The University has educated students from all 64 Louisiana parishes, all 50 states, and more than 140 countries, bringing together a variety of talented and motivated students so that they may learn, connect and pursue their career goals.

The University of New Orleans is a major business driver in metro New Orleans, generating an annual economic impact of nearly half a billion dollars. As a global community asset, we offer a wide array of relevant, undergraduate and graduate academic programs and world-class research opportunities. We proudly contribute to the industry, culture and economy of the New Orleans region and beyond.
