About This CampusAccessibility remains a top priority in UNO’s mission and vision. Today, the campus is known for its student-centered environment, its community engagement and its dedication to embracing students from all types of backgrounds. The campus has built strong partnerships with local business, education, government, arts and civic organizations in the city. UNO’s commitment to community engagement has landed UNO on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for seven consecutive years—the highest federal recognition a school can receive for civic engagement.
UNO, while large enough to provide students with global opportunities, thrives on its personal and close-knit campus culture, where students come first and partnerships with the community grow every day.

This is where Fortune 500 companies, visionary nonprofits, award-winning arts and culture, and innovative start-ups flourish.
