HENDERSON PRAISES LEGISLATURE FOR STABLE HIGHER ED BUDGET

Below is a statement from UL System President and CEO Jim Henderson regarding the passage of HB1: 

"With the final passage of House Bill 1, the Universities of Louisiana are encouraged by one of the most successful legislative sessions for higher education in nearly a decade. We appreciate the diligent work of the Louisiana Legislature and Governor John Bel Edwards to prioritize students, employers, and faculty not just in rhetorical support for colleges and universities, but through action. While we still trail our competitors in terms of resources per student, the stability in state funding and the fulfillment of the TOPS promise position our universities to deliver an even greater return on investment. Through this work, we laid a foundation upon which a stronger Louisiana will be built."
