See the World with The University of New Orleans

UNO is joining the US Department of State and the US Department of Education in celebrating International Education Week (IEW) ( during the week of November 17 - 20, 2015. This is UNO’s 12th 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!
