Since our founding in 1956 as a branch of Baton Rouge's Southern University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, Southern University at New Orleans has grown from four buildings, 158 students and 15 faculty members to three campuses, 3,000 students and 300 faculty and staff members. Despite the devastation caused on the campus by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, SUNO has continued to strive. In addition to renovated and new buildings, the University has continued to have its accreditations reaffirmed. We also are working toward adding a Doctor of Social Work and a Bachelor of Nursing to our academic programs. Please explore our website to learn more about what we have to offer our students, faculty, staff and community. SUNO is a shining example of what can be achieved with perseverance and a passion for excellence.
Enjoy the journey!
