About the Southern University System
The Southern University System was created in 1974 by constitutional mandate, which fashioned it into the nation’s only system of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Presently, the System is composed of five institutions: Southern University and A&M College (est. 1880), Southern University Law Center (est. 1947), Southern University at New Orleans (est. 1956), Southern University at Shreveport (est. 1964), and the Southern University Cooperative Extension Program (est. 1972), which became the fifth component of the System in 2001 and is now named Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center.
