Service with Jazz
Employee of the Year
In appreciation for your dedication,loyalty to your job, and desire to fulfill the goals of the institution, the University of New Orleans proudly names James McAllister as the 2015 Employee of the Year!
James currently serves as a full time Instructor for the department of Foreign Languages, as well as Interim Executive Associate for the department.
Dr. Juliana Starr, Chair for the Department of Foreign Languages says, "His enthusiasm and dedication are contagious. As a result, we have a record number of students in our M.A. program this year. He, more than anyone else, is directly responsible for this rise in our numbers. I cannot stress enough his reliability and knowledge about ways to work efficiently and to recruit students in this time of budget crisis. Even though he does not teach in the M.A. program, it is he who convinced our department to place an ad for it in a national magazine, the first publicity of its kind we have ever done as a department. His openness to other languages and cultures supports our vision of UNO as a globally oriented university."
