SHREVEPORT, La. — Southern University System President and Southern University and A&M College Chancellor Ray L. Belton is planning to retire after 35 years of service.
Dr. Belton announced Friday to the Southern University Board of Supervisors that he intends to retire from his position effective Fall 2022.
Belton said, “By 2022, I will have served as a chief executive officer for more than 21 years, the first 14 years as chancellor of Southern University Shreveport and then, for seven years as president-chancellor for the System and SUBR. This also will mark 35 years of service with the University. Over the course of my tenure, I have had the great fortune to work with some exceptionally talented colleagues. Together, I believe our work has enabled us to position the University in a manner that it will continue to be seen as a premier institution within the higher education community.”
