There is plenty to talk about and celebrate at the University of New Orleans as our students, alumni and faculty continue to make strides and leave their mark on their chosen fields. You can catch up on all the happenings as the fall 2022 issue of Silver & Blue magazine is headed to your mailbox and locations around campus.
Silver & Blue features 52-pages of stories and pictures about the University’s local and global impact via the Privateer Nation.
The magazine’s cover story features alumnus Albert Allenback, a multi-instrumentalist and member of one of the nation’s coolest bands: Tank and the Bangas. Read how Allenback’s entrance into the Grammy-nominated act began while he was a student at UNO.
Learn how alumnus Brian Mitchell’s passion for the past led him to become a scholar-researcher and historian, a journey that began with his sharing his family’s oral history in New Orleans. That passion has taken him to a post as director of research at the presidential library of the 16th president of the United States.
Between the pages of Silver & Blue, you’ll meet UNO transportation graduate student Carrie DeMers Donchez, who is blazing a trail in the male-dominated rail industry as a Norfolk Southern yardmaster based in New Orleans.
You’ll also read about the amazing research being conducted on campus with impact that reaches beyond the lakefront and more. The cutting-edge research includes computer science professor James Wagner’s work to detect internal threats on secure database systems and psychology professor Christopher Harshaw’s study on the possible links between temperature deficits and social-cognitive impairment as it relates to autism spectrum disorder.
