Admissions & Recruitment Staff

Meet Our Staff

Dear Prospective and Admitted Students,

Starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020 the Office of Admissions & Recruitment at Southern University is canceling all campus visits and recruitment events, on and off campus, as a precautionary measure to lower the risk of COVID-19 exposure to our University community and prospective students.

Campus visits and recruitment events will currently remain canceled until further notice. Students will be notified by Admissions & Recruitment staff members regarding changes to events or visits which they may already have scheduled. Communication will be shared and updates posted to the Southern University Admissions & Recruitment Website when it’s deemed safe to resume visit experiences or if timelines are extended.

Our University offices will remain open at this time and you may contact us with any questions, requests for additional information, or other needs by contacting our office. We are currently planning alternate opportunities for students and families to connect virtually with Admissions & Recruitment staff as they make final decisions about their enrollment at Southern University or explore their college options.

Southern University’s priority is to keep students, families, staff and faculty safe. We also want to ensure we are readily available for admitted and prospective students. Please be in touch with us if we can offer support to you during this process and stay tuned for additional details about updates to our visits and events.


Runell J. King, Ph.D.

Director of Recruitment/Interim Admissions Director


**No person(s) within the Office of Admissions & Recruitment or entities related will engage in recruitment efforts or admissions activities for additional merit or supplementary compensation.
