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.
