Center Austria at the University of New Orleans

The mission of Center Austria is to direct international student and faculty mobility between the University of New Orleans and universities in Austria.

Center Austria promotes the communication and extension of Austrian and Central European culture through scholarly and artistic activities and academic partnerships.

Center Austria is based on more than three decades of cooperation with the University of Innsbruck and a Sister-City Agreement between the Cities of Innsbruck, Austria and New Orleans, as well as a new partnership agreement with the University of Graz, Austria.

The Center was launched in the fall of 1997, and it functions as a research and discourse hub for Austrian and European Studies at UNO and in New Orleans. Its origin was the Institute for the Study of Comparative Public Policy.
