Charge to the Commission
The 2009 Louisiana Legislature, with strong support from Governor Jindal, passed legislation sponsored by House Speaker Jim Tucker (Act 309) creating a Commission to study the governance, facilities, funding, operations and number and alignment of degree programs at Louisiana public colleges and to provide a written report of findings and recommendations.
The charge to this Commission, therefore, is:
- To review and analyze Louisiana’s educational needs, relevant data, current policies and practices, structure, and funding mechanisms; and
- In the context of the state’s financial challenges, recommend to the Board of Regents and the legislature the most efficient and effective ways for the state to meet its goal of providing citizens with the educational attainment necessary to meet the critical needs of our state and regions.
