SUNO Chancellor Victor Ukpolo Announces Resignation
  

Southern University of New Orleans Chancellor Victor Ukpolo announced his resignation today, ending a 10-year term at the helm of the Southern University System’s metropolitan campus.

Ukpolo who led the school’s transition as a residential campus and its restoration after Hurricane Katrina, had faced growing criticism for environmental concerns in campus buildings, and low graduation rates.

The former vice president of academic and student affairs for the Southern System told faculty he plans to return to the classroom, and ultimately, to his native Nigeria. System officials have not named an interim chancellor.

  1. Wow, amazing, the work he has done at SUNO was tremendous. To go from Chancellor back to classroom shows there is problems up top. Who wants to go back to classroom after leading an entire campus. REALLY!!! I do know they did not treat him like they should have. I would not be surprised if he went to another institution in the same capacity soon, or at least before he goes back to Nigeria. Wow amazing you will be missed Dr. Ukpolo
