Dean's Message


The Nelson Mandela College of Government and Social Sciences is the only College of Government in the State of Louisiana if not in the region.  Like the world icon, the Honorable President Emeritus Nelson   Mandela, for whom the College is named after, the college stresses Service and competence.   So the mission of the College is to attract and educate men and women from across the globe who will matriculate with the spirit of service, superb competence and employability skills needed in the market, and who further will acquire the uncompromising spirit to fight for Justice and Equality.  As President Barak Obama once observed:  “The arc of the moral universe may bend towards justice, but it doesn’t bend on its own.”
