Statement Regarding the Partial Restoration of Budget Cuts

University of Louisiana System President Randy Moffett:

“The partial restoration of mid-year budget cuts demonstrates that Governor Bobby Jindal understands the long-term benefits of investing in higher education. The University of Louisiana System appreciates the Governor’s support and foresight, and, in turn, we remain committed to cutting costs and streamlining operations at our eight universities.”
