University of Nebraska - Omaha
UNO is the place for serious students looking for a solid education in a metropolitan setting. With ample opportunities for learning both in and outside of the classroom through internships and service learning projects, UNO graduates are well-prepared to assume a leadership role in society and their chosen field. I am enormously proud of our nearly 15,000 students who have received prestigious national recognition for their academic and creative endeavors. Their faculty represent the very best in their fields, earning national teaching awards, securing federal research funding, and advancing the horizons of knowledge in their fields of interest. And, their staff stands ready to help students make a smooth transition from high school to college, and from college to the professional world or additional academic pursuits. Our goal is to focus our attention, expertise and resources on their most important responsibility - their students.
