Why UNO ?
The University of Nebraska at Omaha is fueled by
its historical ties to Omaha. As the first municipal university in
Omaha, the early founders’ goal was to make higher education
accessible and affordable for the city’s residents. In 1968, the
campus joined the University of Nebraska system, and today has the
unique role of serving as the state’s metropolitan campus.
Accessibility 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. UNO’s ranking as the
