Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

The University of New Orleans was the first public university in the American South to open as an integrated institution.

Today the University is committed to fostering a welcoming environment for students, employees and visitors. With diversity, equity and inclusion as core values, the University is guided by the belief that it can reach its full potential only when all members of its community feel valued, respected and empowered. Working to achieve that goal is an institutional priority.
