Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) was founded as a branch unit of Southern University and Agricultural & Mechanical College in Baton Rouge (SUBR) by ACT 28 of the Extraordinary Session of the Louisiana Legislature on September 4th 1956.
On September 21, 1959, SUNO opened its doors on a 17-acre site located in historic Pontchartrain Park, a subdivision of primarily African American single-family residents in eastern New Orleans.
Established as an open community of learners, classes began with 158 freshmen, one building and a motivated faculty of 15. SUNO offered 10 courses in four academic disciplines: Humanities, Science, Social Science and Commerce. SUNO is apart of the Southern University System, the only HBCU system in the world.
