Southern University Community College

Posted:

Southern University will compete for a share of Baton Rouge's community college market this fall as part of a strategy to boost sagging enrollment.  The student numbers have dipped during the past several years with the introduction of tougher state admissions standards.  The state has warned the strategy could backfire when it comes time to assess the performance measures used to divvy up state funding for schools - a concern a spokesman within the Southern System downplayed on Friday.  The plan calls for Southern University at Shreveport, a two-year community college, to operate a satellite location in Baton Rouge.  Students who don't meet the admissions criteria to get into Southern can still get on campus by enrolling in remedial, or developmental courses through Southern-Shreveport.
