Southern University at Shreveport, or SUSLA is a two-year campus of the historically black Southern University System, located in Shreveport, the U.S. state of Louisiana. SUSLA, pushed to fruition by the administration of Governor John J. McKeithen, opened for instruction on September 19, 1967. At the same time a second two-year institution, Louisiana State University at Shreveport, also opened. However, LSUS later became a four-year campus, but SUSLA remains a two-year facility. The university is a member-school of Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

The primary emphasis of SUSLA was to serve the Shreveport-Bossier City area. SUSLA is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate degrees.
