STATEMENT BY UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA SYSTEM PRESIDENT SANDRA WOODLEY ON THE 2014 LOUISIANA LEGISLATIVE SESSION

“Much work and collaboration among all 45 higher education leaders in our state, Governor Jindal’s administration, Speaker Kleckley and President Alario, and our state legislators yielded the most successful legislative session our universities have seen in many years. 

Not only do our schools have stable funding for FY 2015, but also our legislators unanimously voted to strategically invest in growth and innovation through the WISE Fund.  If we are able to sustain and build on this effort in future years,  we will look back to this day as the starting point of a revitalization of Louisiana in which there is alignment between our work in higher education and our collective ambition to achieve a nationally competitive economy.”
