All events are free & open to the public!

UNO is joining the US Department of State and the US Department of Education in celebrating International Education Week (IEW) (http://iew.state.gov) during the week of November 17 - 21, 2014. This is UNO’s 11th year to join in the national initiative.

UNO’s profile in the Greater New Orleans community has always included an international component. This component has continued to grow as members of the UNO faculty, staff, and student body have expanded international programs, events, and collaborations. These can be witnessed not only during IEW, but throughout the year, via such examples as increased course and degree offerings with an international focus, guest lecturers, cooperative research projects, study abroad programs, etc. Join us to celebrate this and to show that we are UNO PROUD!

These were undergraduate students who went for 3 weeks to learn the principles and practices of conducting real field research. Ten students from the United States were partnered with local Gabonese university students to conduct research in teams. A part of the larger program known as the “Central African Biodiversity Alliance,” this project was funded partially by the National Science Foundation, and is a sampling of some of the exciting work being done by UNO’s Department of Biology that has put UNO on the international playing field!
