Title IX

Southern University at New Orleans is committed to creating a welcoming and respectful educational environment that values integrity. Members of the SUNO community, which includes students, faculty, staff, administrators, guests and visitors, have the right to be free from sexual misconduct of any type.

Therefore, SUNO is committed to maintaining a climate of respect and safety for everyone. All members of the SUNO community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. As a result, this campus has a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct. 

When an allegation of sexual misconduct is brought to the attention of the appropriate Campus Representative, and a respondent is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be used to reasonably ensure that such actions cease and are never repeated. In addition, SUNO's response will provide individuals who bring forth complaints with  reasonable remedies that will insure full participation in their educational and/or employment activities. Nothing in this policy shall abridge academic freedom or SUNO's educational mission.

SUNO Athletics accomplished a national championship “three-peat” in the 1970’s. As an NCAA Division III program, the SUNO Knights Outdoor Track & Field team won National Championships in 1975, 1976 and 1977. The Lady Knights won the NAIA National Championships in both Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field in 1995 and 1997. Those seven national titles gives SUNO the second most in the state of Louisiana.
