From the Chancellor

It is truly an honor and my privilege to welcome you to Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO), the only public HBCU (Historically Black College and University) in New Orleans. Since our founding in 1956 as a branch of Baton Rouge's Southern University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, SUNO has grown from four buildings, 158 students and 15 faculty members to three campuses, 2,700 students and 300 faculty and staff members. The faculty bring a wealth and breadth of knowledge to the fundamental principles of teaching at all levels. The departments, within their respective Colleges, and the School of Social Work have designed curricula that are in-depth, knowledge-based, and unproblematic for the diverse learners that we serve. Additionally, this curricula supports students’ intellectual inquiry. 

As a proud alumna, I am pleased to inform you that three new buildings are under construction with a fourth slated for construction later this year. And all University programs requiring accreditation have been reaffirmed. Please explore our Web site to learn more about what we have to offer our students, faculty, staff and community.
