UNIVERSITY OF NEW ORLEANS MISSION
The University of New Orleans, a major statewide research university, drives and supports the development of the educational, economic, and social well-being of the culturally rich New Orleans metropolitan area, the State of Louisiana, the nation, and the global community. Located in an international city, the university provides educational and workforce development opportunities to a highly diverse student population through its research and curricula, and through its Programs of Distinction and Centers of Excellence. The university’s technological and cultural alliances connect the institution, its faculty, and its students to the community through joint projects with public schools, governments, foundations, businesses, and civic groups, enriching opportunities for learning and community growth.
The Vision of the University of New Orleans is to be a major research university for the state of Louisiana and beyond. We will attract and graduate talented students from a wide-variety of ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic backgrounds through an accomplished, diverse and energetic faculty, a wide range of excellent programs, state-of-the-art facilities, engagement with the larger community, and effective communication with all stakeholders. To realize this vision, the university commits its resources--its location in the most culturally rich and interesting city in the U.S., its dedication to recruiting and retaining the best faculty and students, and its public and private finances--to sustain and grow its educational, research and affiliated enterprises.
In fulfilling this vision we will create new legacies by adapting to our constantly changing environment, and dedicate this university to apply its hallmark determination, its commitment to students, and its innovative spirit to recruit, retain, and graduate more students than our institutional peers.
