Chancellor's Office

The only thing that is constant in today’s world is change, and Southern University at New Orleans is once again growing.

Still, the faculty, administration, and staff of this great University all strive to give the student a caring place to succeed.

Our graduate and undergraduate students are succeeding every day where they are building new businesses and serving communities not only in New Orleans but around the nation. The students are assuming roles of leadership domestically and internationally.

In 2016, we will celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the founding of Southern University at New Orleans. The celebration of our beloved SUNO continues, and we invite you to explore our various colleges, learn more about the University, and enjoy the exciting developments on both the Park and Lake Campuses.
