Jindal Talks UNO-Southern Merger At Jefferson Parish Luncheon
Written by 

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal provided more details to the possible merger of Univeristy of New Orleans and Southern University of New Orleans when he addressed Jefferson Parish on his 2010 “Building a Better Louisiana for Our Children” parish tour at the Airport Hilton- Grand Ballroom in Kenner.

During his address, Jindal discussed the reasons for considering merging UNO with the traditionally black University, SUNO.


After the luncheon address, Jindal fielded media questions which largely focused upon the UNO, SUNO merger issue.

Jindal said that Southern was under performing and under-utilized with a poor graduation rate of 5%. 

Jindal has asked the Louisiana Board of Regents to study the issue.

In addition to discussing the possible merger, Jindal also addressed the gains the state has made since he took elective office as Governor.

Hundreds of political and business leaders from the metropolitan area attended the luncheon event presided over by Jefferson Parish President John Young.

Below are relevant videos of the press conference and photos of the luncheon event:
