For six decades, the University of New Orleans has been on the forefront as the city’s only public research university. UNO students, faculty and alumni continue to lead on and off campus in their chosen fields. The fall 2018 issue of Silver & Blue boasts 52 pages of stories and pictures about the University’s local and global impact via its students, alumni and faculty.
You can read the serendipitous tale of alumna Morgan Martin who arrived at the University of New Orleans the year after Hurricane Katrina, and how her UNO education propelled her to groundbreaking marine biology research in Africa. You can get an update on the UNO students who played a role in helping solve a 73-year-old mystery that involved the disappearance of a Tuskegee Airman. And you will meet Langston Williams, the University of New Orleans film student who earned a coveted invite to the Cannes International Film Festival.
Read about how the University is helping prepare the next generation of STEM Scholars as well as the man who went from bagging groceries to playing a dozen years in the NBA—after enrolling in UNO. You also can meet 14 of the new faculty members who were hired this year and whose research explores everything from cybersecurity and malware attacks to Albert Einstein’s quantum physics theory of “spooky entanglements” and financial analytics.
The University of New Orleans is on the move and Silver & Blue captures and shares that momentum with our readers!
The fall 2018 edition of Silver & Blue is headed to your mailbox and locations around campus. A digital copy is available online.
