Apr 5, 2017 — Dear Concerned Jaguars,

Please accept this post as acknowledgement and receipt of your petition requesting an investigation of the Southern University Division of Student Affairs. I would like to thank you for sharing your concerns as well as those who have signed the petition and given their reasons for doing so. I take this opportunity to assure you that the University administration does not take your comments lightly. I had previously begun to assess the assertions made in your petition with the appropriate personnel and am continuing to do so. I hope to complete that assessment in the very near future.

As administrators, it is our aim to provide a positive environment that is conducive to learning for our students and one that is supportive of faculty and staff in carrying out the University’s mission. Similarly, we value the dedication and opinions of our alumni and supporters. We are committed to effective and efficient operations throughout the Southern University System for our stakeholders.

Again, thank you for expressing your concerns and I look forward to working with you to further advance our shared goals for our University.
