Program A: Education and General Expenditures

Program Authorization: Act 28 of 1956; Act 313 of 1975

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Role, Scope, and Mission Statement: The mission of Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) is to create and maintain an environment conducive to learning and growth, to promote the upward mobility of all people by preparing them to enter into new as well as traditional careers, and to equip them to function optimally in the mainstream of the American Society. The university provides a sound education tailored to special needs of students coming to an open admissions university and prepares students for full participation in a complex society. The university offers a liberal education directed toward the development of higher literacy and a broad intellectual development, which in turn serves as a foundation for training in one of the professions. The SUNO ideal is thus a harmony of the general and the special aspects of learning. It aims at both immediate and long-range rewards. In support of its stated mission, the university embraces six basic objectives: 1) to afford to the citizenry of the Greater New Orleans metropolitan area increased opportunities for higher learning; 2) to provide instruction for the working adult populace of the area who seek to continue their education in the evenings or on the weekend; 3) to train individuals for positions in business, education, industry, and government; 4) to prepare students for graduate work or advanced study; 5) to instruct at the graduate level for the awarding of advanced degrees; 6) to provide opportunities for personal development, self-understanding, and an enhanced self-image.

The goals of Southern University of New Orleans are:

1. To continue to be accessible to all Louisianians.

2. To contribute to the overall quality and effectiveness of the state’s system of higher education.

3. To increase the university’s accountability in the state’s system of higher education.

 

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value.

For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
