Message from the Chancellor

As we conclude another successful academic year and prepare for the next, we take time to reflect on our achievements and how Southern University at Shreveport (SUSLA) and our graduates are impacting the community, state, nation and the world in which we live.

While we cannot tell the entire story, this video provides a brief overview of those major accomplishments we could have only achieved with support from stalwart partners like you. SUSLA’s commitment to excellence and service is clearly exhibited through our world class faculty and staff who are valued partners with you and our students. These partnerships insure the progression of the SUSLA vision through those who are championing our charge.

I consider it an honor and privilege to lead this great institution. For those who join us on this journey, we thank you and look forward to continuing to blaze new trails with you by our side. To that end, we invite you to go to and “Give to SUSLA” online so that we can continue to impact the lives of students and the community. We also ask that you share this message with your friends and partners on your social media pages.


These are exciting times… Our opportunities are limitless!


Dr. Rodney Ellis
