Southern U Issues Surface

Southern University warned it could lose accreditation needed to issue degrees, receive federal grants

Southern University was warned last week that it could lose its accreditation that is required for the school to offer degrees and receive federal dollars.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges placed Southern University on a warning list during its June board meeting. SACS is one of the six major accrediting bodies in the U.S. for higher education institutions.

Southern received the sanction because the school missed benchmarks related to its faculty, student achievement, “institutional effectiveness,” and student complaints.

    I did a summer workshop there four summers ago. I was appalled at the conditions of the facilities where we met for class and instruction. This was a partnership between La. Tech and Southern. The classrooms were not only in terrible shape because of broken desks, etc, but were also filthy. Property had not been respected on any level
