Accreditation and Review of Academic Programs

Dr. David S. Adegboye, Director

The purpose of the Achievement of Accreditation of Institutional Degree Programs component is to ensure a basic level of educational quality for SUNO’s academic programs. Supplemental funding provided by Title III assists the university with attaining professional accreditation in its degree programs.


Southern University System Policy Number 03:03 mandates that the university conduct a self-evaluation of programs that are not accredited by an accredited agency at least once every five years in an attempt to maintain program quality.  Southern University at New Orleans has an obligation to be accredited or reaffirmed by the following accrediting agencies:


1.      Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SACS) – reaffirmation

2.      National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education  (NCATE) – reaffirmation

3.      Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) – reaffirmation

4.      American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) – initial accreditation


Achieving success in these accreditation efforts is virtually mandatory for the survival of the institution.  We have also come to the conclusion that our activities must focus on academic excellence in order to boost our enrollment, graduation rate, and retention, and of course, gain a new much improved public image.
