Southern University System

Southern University System

What began, as a dream in 1880 is today a living legacy of determination, commitment, and success. The Southern University and A&M College System is the only historically black university system in America.

The SU System has a diverse enrollment and is a leader in graduate and undergraduate level education through quality four-year, graduate, professional, and research programs among its five Louisiana campuses. SU is among the top producers of African-American graduates in combined disciplines of engineering, technology, business, computer science, nursing, and mathematics. Widespread accomplishments of Southern University faculty and alumni have positively impacted society at every level.

With a strong foundation, a proven record of achievement, and a fresh vision for the future, Southern University's charge to advance the mission of its founders' remains at the heart of our administrators, faculty, students, and alumni. 

Southern University opened its doors in 1880 in New Orleans, Louisiana, with 12 students, five faculty members, and a budget totaling $10,000. In 1914, the University was relocated to Louisiana's capital city - Baton Rouge.

The Southern University and A&M College System was created by the state legislature under the management of the Southern University Board of Supervisors. The University expanded to other cities in the state, establishing Southern University, New Orleans (SUNO), Southern University, Shreveport (SUSLA), the Southern University Law Center, and the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center (SUAREC).

Campuses within the Southern University System are accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097; telephone number - 404.679.4501) to award certificate, associate, baccalaureate, master's, doctorate, and professional degrees. Southern University Law Center is accredited by both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the American Bar Association (750 N. Lakeshore Drive, Chicago, Illinois 60611; telephone number - 312.988.6738).
