Southern University In New Orleans (SUNO) Reports 91% Of Pre-Katrina Attendance
Written by 

With Governor Jindal requesting that the Louisiana Board Of Regents study a possible merger of Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) with the University of New Orleans (UNO), Southern has released new enrollment statistics that argue against that merger.

According to new Spring 2011 stats released by SUNO, its current enrollment is 91% of its pre-Hurricane Katrina figure.  One of the arguments made by the advocates of the merger have been that SUNO’s post-Katrina enrollment has resulted in the university being less effective and cost-beneficial.  

Jindal has also emphasized that SUNO’s graduation rates are at 5%, the lowest in Louisiana.

The official 2011 Spring enrollment for Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) is 3,318, representing the University’s highest enrollment since Hurricane Katrina.  This figure also signifies a 91% return of SUNO’s pre-Katrina enrollment of 3,647 students.  Additionally, this marks a 6% increase in enrollment from Spring 2010 to Spring 2011.  When the University resumed its on-campus operations in Spring 2006, the enrollment was 2,037.

“This signifies that students remain confident that we are a great fit for them as they pursue their respective undergraduate and graduate degrees,” said Victor Ukpolo, Ph.D., the chancellor of SUNO.  “We are thankful for the continued student support as well as the continued resilience of the administration, faculty, and staff.  We had more than 3,500 students registered, but financial difficulties prevented some of them from finalizing their commitments to the University.”  Per University guidelines, students are required to pay their fees by the fourteenth day of classes.

Spring 2011 is the second semester that SUNO has implemented selective admission mandated by the Louisiana Board of Regents, and the University’s enrollment has increased even with those standards in place.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
