Classes Suspended
Mar 16 – Mar 20 all-day
Consistent with University of Louisiana System mandates, next week’s class suspension aims to support students’ immediate transition off-campus and provide time to invest in the University’s transition to 100% online classes for the remainder of the semester.
Continued University Operations with Heightened Attention to Safety
The shift to online classes will not disrupt regular administrative functions; unless determined by department heads, personnel are expected to report to campus at the usual times.
Campus Dining Continues to Serve Student Needs Throughout the Transition
SodexoMAGIC, Grambling State’s dining provider, is prepared to continue regular 24-hour dining service for students through March 23. Students are urged to observe appropriate social distancing and handwashing consistent with prior prevention instructions.
Students are Encouraged to Depart from Campus by March 23
Campus Living will provide students with support and guidance on housing transitions and other issues related to their departure from campus. The adjusted University academic calendar can be seen at; Spring Break will take place as scheduled with no coursework beginning April 3 and online classes resuming April 14.
Graduating Seniors Should Expect to Forgo Spring Commencement
Consistent with CDC guidance for avoiding large gatherings, University administration has cancelled the Spring commencement ceremony. Spring graduates will receive their degree certificates via mail and will have the option to participate in a later ceremony to be scheduled.
“As the ongoing response effort to novel coronavirus puts the nation in uncharted territory, we have made difficult decisions in the interest of public safety,” said President Gallot. “Each semester we all look forward to celebrating the hard work of our students and faculty, so it is very disappointing for all of us to cancel commencement.”
More information on remote learning, campus departure, student support, and campus operations is forthcoming. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to stay informed on the developing situation by checking University email, text messages, and following official University social media handles.

2020 Criminal Justice Lecture Series – Criminal Justice Reform (EVENT CANCELLED) @ Black & Gold Room (FSU)
Mar 17 @ 8:00 am – Mar 18 @ 3:00 pm


According to the Equal Justice Initiative, “The United States incarcerates its citizens more than any other country with the impact of such disproportionately impacting the poor and people of color, and doing so does not make us any safer (EJI, 2020).”

For these reasons and many others, the Department of Criminal Justice at Grambling State University is inviting you to join us for our two day conference on Criminal Justice Reform, “Bridging the Gap Between Practitioners, Researchers, and Policy Makers”.

The event will take place on March 17-18, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in the Black and Gold Room at GSU. Along with some great keynote speakers, there will also be Mental Health and Criminal Justice  Professionals, including Dr. Monteic A. Sizer and our very own President Gallot, who will be speaking on a range of topics, including:

  1. Making the Case for Criminal Justice Reform
  2. Conditions of Confinement: Challenges and Opportunities
  3. Ending Mass Incarceration: Sentencing and Bail Reform
  4. Collateral Consequences: Difficulties of Reintegration
  5. The Impact of Public Health Policy

While this is a lecture series sponsored by the Criminal Justice Department, this event is FREE and open to the public. We encourage any and everyone who has ever been impacted by the disproportionate mass incarceration and mistreatment of minorities to please come out. It is also open to undergraduate and graduate students majoring in the fields of social work, sociology, and psychology.

Should you have any questions or need additional information please l feel free to contact Dr. Karletta White by email at or phone at 318-274-2526.

Thank you and we hope to see you on March 17th.
